The attack was demonstrated on the iPhone of Cnet’s Elinor Mills. This is what she had to say of how this attack works in practice:
The only thing you can do to stop the attack is to turn off your iPhone quickly.
According to the report, the researches informed Apple about the
security flaw over a month ago but Apple is yet to release a patch to
address the bug.
Miller had also discovered a vulnerability in the original iPhone soon after it was launched. At that time, Apple was prompt in addressing the security hole. They had fixed it in iPhone OS 1.0.1 just two days before Miller was set to reveal the details at that year's Black Hat conference.
Let's hope Apple releases a fix for this one soon. We will let you know if we get any more details.
