    Android was affected by this vulnerability as well, but Google fixed it. Apple hasn't fixed it yet. For this exploit to work the hacker only needs to know the phone # of it's victim, no files need to be downloaded! Once the hacker attacks an iPhone the hacker can also take over other iPhone's from the address book. It'll be interesting to see whether or not Apple will release an update to fix these issues. According to the article Apple was notified about it 6 weeks ago but they didn't do anything about it.
