A security researcher at the Black Hat Conference has claimed that there exists major flaws in the Apple iPhone..Nicolas Seriot said that the Apple iPhone contains serious vulnerabilities that allows attackers and malware developers to easily create applications that can steal the user data, such as recent calls and locations..
"Overall security improves with each new iPhone version, but some basic security principles are still not correctly implemented, in particular the least-privilege principle, the deny-by-default principle and a recognition that it is dangerous for Apple to deny the existence of vulnerabilities," Seriot wrote in a paper entitled iPhone Privacy (PDF).
Seriot argued that Apple should acknowledge the flaws, implement better protection of the iPhone's cache files and develop an outbound firewall to block the transmission of stolen data.
The researcher warned iPhone users to keep a close eye on what they install on the handset, including third-party software from Apple's App Store.
"As a basic precaution, users should regularly clean the browser's recent searches and the keyboard cache in 'Settings'."
"Consumers should be aware that iPhone security is far from perfect, and that a piece of software downloaded from the App Store may still be harmful," he wrote.
So, people who still have a plan of buying the so called "iPhone", please do not buy.. There are a lot of other smartphones available which are better than iPhone..
