    Can anyone confirm?!?!?!

    A single character sent by text message could allegedly compromise every iPhone released to date. The technique involves sending only one unusual text character or else a series of "invisible" messages that confuse the phone and open the door to attack. Apple has not released any updates yet. So little can be done, except power off your iPhone to avoid being hacked."

    today is said to be the day of the hack but honestly... until its patched any day can be a good day for a hack. I refuse to live in fear and not use my device that i pay for. However if its true that Apple has notified of this "hole" months ago shame on them for not doing anything.
