First iPhone Update Now Available: Bye Bye Recent Security Flaws


Apple updated its iPhone for the first time last night, making available software version 1.0.1 via, and only via, iTunes. The update contains the usual ambiguities like “bug fixes,” but the most significant news here is that Apple patched all the security holes that lead to people calling for Jobs’ head a few days ago. Hackers, script kiddies and the women who love them can no longer XSS their way into your iPhone, nor can they wreak havoc upon the phone’s Safari Web browser.

You’d do well to update the phone lickety split, lest some leet kid pwn your cell. And, after dropping so much on a phone you wouldn’t want that to happen, right?
