iPhone update coming next week?

Security researchers are set to reveal details of a previously-reported security flaw in the iPhone next week at the Black Hat 2007 conference, leading to speculation that Apple may update the device to patch the vulnerability in advance of the event. Apple hasn’t said whether a patch will be delivered prior to when the researchers are expected to disclose their findings. Robert Graham, CEO of Errata Security, said, “Right now other smart phones are full of vulnerabilities and they are not getting patched. This is actually a good test to see if Apple can do this better than the mobile carriers.” If and when a patch is released, it will be the first software update for the iPhone, which went on sale nearly a month ago.
