iOS 6 fixes SMS spoofing bug according to hacker

According to iOS hacker Joshua Hill aka p0sixninja, many security vulnerabilities have been stamped out in iOS 6.

Earlier today, Hill tweeted that pod2g’s SMS exploit was among one of the security issues addressed.

It was back in August that the bug was initially brought to light by hacker pod2g, but as it turns out, it was more of an issue with the underlying framework of SMS, rather than the iPhone itself. It just so happens that the way the iPhone displays SMS messages made potentially made the vulnerability easier to exploit.

I guess we can all rest a little easier tonight knowing that Apple has our back, wouldn’t you say?
