An iPhone’s SMS system seems to be vulnerable and now may have been exploited. There is word on the street that about a possible virus which could be infecting the device.

A customer walked into a GeekSquad store in Texas receiving a prompt on his screen which wouldnt allow Safari to be closed.

Apple thinks the issue was caused by jailbreaking the iPhone.

How do you know if you’ve been infected? Reportedly, you’ll receive an SMS message with a single square character, at which point your phone will become inoperable. As we mentioned earlier, the exploit is supposedly so severe that your entire phone can be taken over remotely, as such, the “turn your phone off immediately” if you receive the message seems to be the only sound advice at this point.

None of us here at AverageGuys have an iPhone, but we will continute to update if any further information is released.
