Pwn2Own 2010: iPhone hacked, SMS database hijacked | Zero Day |

VANCOUVER, BC xxx8212; A pair of European researchers used the spotlight of the CanSecWest Pwn2Own hacking contest here to break into a fully patched iPhone and hijack the entire SMS database, including text messages that had already been deleted.

Using an exploit against a previously unknown vulnerability, the duo xxx8212; Vincenzo Iozzo and Ralf Philipp Weinmann xxx8212; lured the target iPhone to a rigged Web site and exfiltrated the SMS database in about 20 seconds.
