SMS exploit got fixed… Bullies are disappointed :P

If you remember Charlie Miller and his iPhone SMS vulnerability, you’d probably be disappointed by this news 😛

Apple patched that hole in the iPhone OS 3.0.1 280MB update.

I’d like to quote this quote from Engadget:

We appreciate the information provided to us about SMS vulnerabilities which affect several mobile phone platforms. This morning, less than 24 hours after a demonstration of this exploit, we’ve issued a free software update that eliminates the vulnerability from the iPhone. Contrary to what’s been reported, no one has been able to take control of the iPhone to gain access to personal information using this exploit.

Now, lemme start getting funny…

What’s with “Free software update”? IT’S A VULNERABILITY UPDATE!!!
You’re gonna charge your users for a vulnerability in YOUR SYSTEM and STILL CHARGE FOR IT!?

Then again, I’m quite sure iTards will gladly pay a big chunk of money to get that update… After all, they’re iTards… Specially the ones in Kuwait 😛

A 280MB update for a small patch!? SERIOUSLY!? To me, it means one of the following:
1) They’re updating the whole firmware (Or atleast letting you download the whole firmware) instead of providing a 1MB patch to fix it.
2) Their system is really crapped up that to update such fundamental thing, they need to rewrite major things just to cover this.
3) They’re even more stupid than Microsoft nowdays (I’d like to believe in this) 😛
