Apple Rushes Out SMS Vulnerability Patch

Apple has been working feverishly to pump out a new patch for a recently publicized SMS vulnerability originally disclosed by researchers Charlie Miller, an analyst with Independent Security Evaluators, and Collin Mulliner from the Technical University of Berlin, at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas.

At approximately 2pm EST Apple released the iPhone 3.0.1 software update. The release notes of the 3.0.1 update were short and to the point: "Fixes SMS vulnerability" for the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

To download the 3.0.1 security update, connect the iPhone to your computer, click on the "Check for update" button and follow the on-screen instructions.
