Did you know that IOS has a security hole that allows developers full access to contacts, pictures, calendar entries and much more? Very few know about the Iphone and Iphone are vulnerable, but Apple has an eye and is planning an update soon.
A few weeks ago, including Web site 9to5Mac about a vulnerability in IOS made ​​it possible for developers to download images from users’ phones – without their noticing. Soon the New York Times dig into the data and made its own investigation and then published.

By using an anonymous developer for IOS, they managed to create an application that was apparently harmless, but in the background could download personal information from the device as the app ran on. Everything was sent to a specially designed server.

Apple quickly gained knowledge of security hole and is currently working on an update of the IOS that clog it. At the moment there is no way to protect themselves, in addition to not install any apps at all – and how fun is that?

There is no information about the security hole used by the apps on the App Store, or if it’s only stores for jailbreakade units affected.
