    *RING*

    "Mr Jobs"

    "yes"

    "Thank you for not patching a 1 year old problem, the hack is complete"

    "It's 3am"

    "Mark that on your calendar Mr Jobs. It will be a memorable moment in time tomorrow when you get to work and realize what this call is about."

    :D

    Awfully nice of them to let Apple know what to patch next.

    Yeah, the earlier Apple knows about this, the earlier they can fix it, and put a new firmware on the shipping iPhones. This potentially limits the number of iPhones on the market with the 1.1.1 firmware.

    Boy, its never more obvious than moments like these how twisted it is that security FLAWS could be seen as a GOOD thing on the most personal of personal digital assistants. If Apple is proactive in fixing these things, this will be the most bullett-proof mobile OS ever (by virtue of being both an open source kernel and closed, causing people to pore over it for exploits).

    I don't think hackers will win this one. Apple has 1.1.2 ready to go as soon as 1.1.1 is hacked

    Maybe we won't get as many divs updating their jailbroken/unlocked phones this time and won't get the subsequent uproar.

    I think the next update might come after Leopard comes out. It will have updated apps on the touch device.

    If this is true, then Apple could make a quick update I guess....

    Riiight, and 1.1.2 fixes the bug that the hackers have found, before the hackers found it, right?
    Releasing an update doesn't automatically fix hacks, they've got to actually address the issue for that to hapen.
    The hackers will crack it, apple will download their crack, analyse it, test it, patch it, test it, and then release it.

    So a year ago when this issue was brought to light and they didn't fix it....... you think they'll do it NOW all of a sudden, eh?

    I don't know what they will do or won't do, but I would imagine that patching a known exploit is probably easier than patching an unknown one!

    Seriously sometimes...(sigh).

    Unfortunately, yup. A security related problem that affects the phone? When people started commenting on that the ringtone "trick" will be "fixed" in an update, I laughed it off. When the metadata/ringtone trick worked, they said it again. I poo-pooed. Each fixed, one update later. Arguably Apple's biggest mistake was leaving the phone so wide open. People are widely reporting the nature of this exploit. The only thing that will hold back a fix, will be the other fixes they want to include with it. Considering the Leopard launch, there will likely be an October iPhone update or a November iPhone update.

    We'll see, right?
