Security hole at the iOS app store

Hacker Charlie Miller exploited a couple if security holes to create an iPhone app that can download malicious code after a user installs it. And he got his test app through Apple's security screen and into the app store.

“Now you could have a program in the App Store like Angry Birds that can run new code on your phone that Apple never had a chance to check,” says Miller. “With this bug, you can’t be assured of anything you download from the App Store behaving nicely.”
