The CDMA iPhone 4 can be made available for customers to buy as early as November 2010 and might be renamed into Apple iPhone 5, iPhone HD or iPhone 4S, no one knows.

Reports also suggest that releasing iPhone 4 on major US wireless carriers such as T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless etc. Apple can increase the market share of smartphones in US significantly following Google’s popular policy for releasing and launching new smartphones across all carrier platforms.

After a traumatizing 10 days when hackers exploited a loop hole in iPhone’s mobile Safari web browser and released a web-based jailbreak utility using that security loophole. Apple responded to the situation and yesterday released the latest update to its iOS operating system running on the iPhone, iPad and the iPod Touch urging users to update their devices to version 4.0.2 of iOS in order to close that security hole. After the hack has been shut by Apple via the official iOS update, the hacker who developed the jailbreak using the loophole has released the source of his exploits, which enable users to install unauthorized apps.

clip_image001

“Impressive. And dangerous,” said Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer at antivirus company F-Secure, on Twitter early today of the exploit code. The exploit code can enable hackers to gain access to the iPad, iPhone or the iPad of a user by luring them to visit a malicious website containing the source code or asking them to click a link or open and e-mail and then gain root access to their device. “@comex thanks, using it to make malicious s*** now,” tweeted someone identified as MTWomg on Twitter. Also, a popular Mac vulnerability researcher, Dino Dai Zovi noted that, “Now that @comex released his jailbreak source, any bets on how long before it is ported to Metasploit?” on twitter.

After the release of the source code for the jailbreakme hack, it is strongly advised to all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users to update their iOS to 4.0.2 as it correctly solves the problem. This includes those users as well which have jailbroken their devices.

Seems like Android is being hit by First Trojan virus named Trojan-android SMS.AndroidOS.FakePlayer.a. As reported by Kaspersky team

“The new malicious program penetrates smart phones running Android in the guise of a harmless media player application. Users are prompted to install a file of just over 13 KB with the standard Android extension .APK. Once installed on the phone, the Trojan uses the system to begin sending SMSs to premium rate numbers without the owner’s knowledge or consent, resulting in money passing from a user’s account to that of the cybercriminals.”

This virus doesn’t install automatically but you need to give permission to access send SMS messages, read data and so on.

So if you are an Android user you should give permission to any application when you know what it is. According to mashable:

“The Trojan “media player” that’s causing concern today isn’t available in the Android Market. Rather, it is “being distributed from a malicious website,” according to Kaspersky researcher Denis Maslennikov. “You have to click it manually, there is no drive-by download. If you try to install it, the Smartphone will ask you to grant permission for the application to send SMS messages, read or delete data from SD and collect the data about the phone and phone ID.”

Kaspersky team is working on building an Antivirus for Android powered device and we hope to have it some time soon.
