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.
But unlike the PC, the attack would not use a PDF file attached to emails. F-Secure suspect, Twitter could be a better vehicle for attack.

Then, players spread the word and link horrendous. As news of Obama's fake death spread via Twitter account is Fox News.
Well, a curious user can click that link and connect to pages that exploit vulnerabilities in the iPhone.
Currently, the iPhone has been a gap in the PDF can be used by a site to perform an automatic jailbreak. Users simply open the site, via Safari on their iPhone, and click the Install button without needing to download any application to download the jailbreak their device.
