I reported last week about the iPhone hack that Michael Jenkin was investigating. I understand that Michael has been working with various authorities on the problem. Microsoft have had their security team review a number of systems and found no compromise, the federal authorities are happy that the servers are not compromised either. Apple however have been noticeably silent on the issue and in fact AFAIK not even responded officially except to request that the media not be contacted… One might be forgiven for thinking that Apple was either not interested in the issue, or more seriously, knows about the issue and therefore does not want to talk about it… whatever the reason, it’s not a good situation for iPhone users
Michael Jenkin was understandably upset to learn that Flash SMS or 0 SMS records are not available from Telstra. The messages can be directed to a phone and then once dismissed, all traces are removed. Telstra either do not record the messages or the senders of these messages or at the very least, do not want to release this information, even to the owner of the phone. This does not bode well for current issues the world are facing including cyber bullying and other tactics and criminal activities involving mobile phones.
Wish I had more to report on this… but figured I’d try to bring you at least some of the information available now.

Thankyou to all those who have emailed me after expeariancing this same attack. The latest person to have this issue was not using Wireless or Bluetooth. The have not Jailbroken their phone and it is an iPhone 4s with the latest OS.
Update for those that find themselves in this situation. We found the person dong this. It was being done to scare people into handing out money to remove the worrysome messages and stop the attacks.
3 step process.
Hack someones personal PC and get all their passwords out of their Windows local password cache and Internet explorer cache.
Get an older windows mobile with a Flash SMS application and send flash SMS to your target and scare them into thinking that they have been hacked by including personal details and some gibberish.
Later make contact and try and get money from the person who was attacked.
As it is a flash SMS, sending it to an iPhone will not provide sender details and the SMS is deleted as soon as it is viewed.
In this case Exchange, the server, Activesync and the iPhone are not actually hacked.
