    ^^^^ we´re not even aware of it happening What´s worrying is the fact that it can be done, easily.

    Im not in a bad mood at all King Del. Had a great day at church, relaxing with the family watching some NCAA basketball. Was just wanting some enlightenment, I'm kind of ignorant when it comes to smartphones.

    What affects the consumer in this instance is that your computer can be controlled by the exploit there using in Safari without you knowing. They can run programs,scripts, pretty much whatever they want to do, remotely. This is on a PC or Mac, not smartphones. So, while there is the chance that you can be affected the chances that you, a small timer is remote. You're more vulnerable to this if you use a PC just for the fact of market saturation.

    Just as you stated everything can be hacked. Android,BB,iPhone. The all have their weaknesses when it come to folks that know what they are doing. What we have to keep in mind is that the chances of this actually happing to a random person is quite slim. Most of the people that have the know how to use this are more likely to go after thing s that will make them money.

    Identity theft is something that we all need to be aware of and this could be used to aid that. Although this is a extremely complex method of going about getting that kind of info. Facebook,myspace,twitter, all of these sites list and post your info with little security to sesitive info that you have on those sites. Even forums are a good source of info to get your targets for that type of crime as most people will post name,email, city and such.

    As far as smartphones a concerned, apple does a pretty decent job of being proactive in avoiding security risks. If you're jail broken you obviously have a opened the door by bypassing most of apples built in security. Android, while secure in the OS and the way you have to go about exploiting it is rather complex, you have to get to the kernel to carry out a lot of functions. Can be done because Google allows it's developers to post immediately to the market without review. Its only after somethingnhas happened does google take action and while usually they are quick to react, the damage has most likely been done.
