"In fact, David Maynor, another security researcher with Errata Security, writes in his blog that he's already discovered a bug in the new version of Safari browser that will be used on the iPhone. He says that backdoor can be exploited to hijack the iPhone with hidden software, just as hackers have corralled millions of unwitting PCs with malware that sends spam, attacks Web sites or steals bank codes. Given that the Mac OS and the version of Safari to be used on the iPhone are already available for experimentation, Maynor guesses that he won't be the only one poking at the iPhone's weaknesses.

I'm sure one of the first things that will happen when the iPhone is first turned on is it will do a nice software update. ;)
