iPhones appear to pose greater security risks than Android, Blackberry and Nokia smart phones, but is this really the case? An nCircle survey says yes, security expert Charlie Miller says not necessarily, and Pwn2Own sponsor TippingPoint won't say
The only researcher to "three-peat" at the Pwn2Own hacking contest, Charlie Miller said that security is such a "broken record" that he won't hand over 20 vulnerabilities he's found in Apple's, Adobe's and Microsoft's software.
Vincenzo Iozzo and Ralf Weinmann scored US$15,000 at the annual Pwn2Own hacking contest for bypassing tough security measures introduced in iPhone 2.0. It is the first fully functioning attack on an iPhone since Apple released version 2 in 2008, said Charlie Miller.
