Summary : The iPhone business model relies on consumers trust in a closed ecosystem.
According to Apple: "Applications on the device are sandboxed so they cannot access data stored by other applications. In addition, system files, resources, and the kernel are shielded from the user's application space."
This presentation will discuss iPhone privacy issues and challenge Apple's stance and assertions regarding iPhone security.
The presentation will also show how a rogue application can access substantial quantities of personal data on an unmodified device and expose how it could go unnoticed in spite of AppStore tight reviews.
