Businesses Should React To iPhone4 Hack

Lumension Security : 29 October, 2010  (Technical Article)
Lumension is recommending swift action by businesses to protect corporate iPhones using the iOS4 operating system from the latest hack
With the exposure of a major security flaw on the iPhone iOS4 operating system, businesses should not be left twiddling their thumbs whilst they wait for a solution.

Alan Bentley, SVP International at Lumension commented: "The reported flaw in the iOS4 operating system comes as absolutely no surprise. With the mass adoption of high profile devices like the iPhone, it was only a matter of time before cyber criminals turned their attention to this new data hotbed and began to find ways to crack the codes and unlock the valuable assets within them.

"In addition to the obvious impact this threat could have on consumers, businesses worldwide have issued iPhones to employees to support mobile working. With the vulnerability potentially exposing reams of personal and corporate data, this is a threat Apple must tackle quickly. Until now, security concerns over smartphones have been about protecting the data being sent from the device and unauthorised connectivity into corporate networks, but now users have to be equally mindful of what, or who, might get in.

"An initial step businesses can take is to ensure that all employees are fully aware of the risk at hand with this new threat, until Apple releases the necessary patching to tackle the flaw and close the gates and keep the bad guys at bay once again."
