However, F-Secure does not believe that there will be an attack specifically targeting the iPhone. Well, if any, how the attack on IOS-based devices like the iPhone or iPad will happen?

F-Secure said the attack would take advantage of certain weaknesses. For example, the current weakness of the PDF has been patched by IOS 4.3.4.
