The Inquirer: A security researcher who uses the handle Pod2g has revealed that every version of the Apple iPhone, including the most recent, is vulnerable to an SMS spoofing attack. A bug in the way Apple implements SMS could allow a hacker to send a message that appears to come from anyone.

Apple has acknowledged the bug and encourages users to use iMessage to avoid the problem.
