Report claims iPhone will be ‘primary target’ for hackers in ‘08

A security forecast released by Arbor Networks suggests that the iPhone will be a major target for hackers in 2008. Arbor’s Security and Engineering Response Team, who put together the forecasts, believe that the iPhone will be the victim of a “serious attack” next year. These attacks are “likely to be in the form of drive by attacks – malware embedded into seemingly harmless information, images or other media that actually perform dangerous actions when rendered on the iPhone’s Web browser.”  In addition, the team suggests that “hackers will be enticed by the possibility of attacking Apple users and the opportunity to ‘be the first’ to hack a new platform.”
