SPOTLIGHT: First iPhone bug discovered

Thanks to months of iPhone hype and the vindication of huge sales, by anyone's estimate, Apple is certainly riding high this week. Leave it to the hackers, however, to try to cut the company down to size.

What's more, it was found that the iPhone is just as vulnerable to caller ID spoofing--which can allow others to access your voicemail--as any other AT&T/Cingular handset. With as many as 525,000 iPhones now in the wild, these vulnerabilities could pose a major threat to iPhone users--not to mention the employers of those iPhone users. Article
