Forbes: ‘Is The iPhone Insecure?’

Andy Greenberg, writing for Forbes:

“It seems Apple is releasing a device with no thought to enterprise security,” says Andrew Storms, director of operations of the computer security firm nCircle. “It’s going to be entering enterprise networks whether we like it or not, and it’s a nightmare for security teams.”

Storms, like most everyone else anticipating the iPhone launch, admits that his worries are largely limited to speculation […]

“Largely” speculation? How are these concerns not wholly limited to speculation? Then he goes on to link to this David Maynor weblog entry about exploits against Safari for Windows and describes it as “a bug in the new version of Safari browser that will be used on the iPhone.” Jiminy.
