    Be careful, Endgadget Mobile claims that in 2008, hackers will find security holes in iPhone and use it to take control of it.

    iphone wont be interesting for hackers, for it is an embedded system and it just wouldn't be of any real use to the hackers...

    Also, the big concern was that they would be able to access the iPhone/ iPot through the .tiff exploit, which has been fixed.

    I've heard about these things as well, but there are no serious threats against the iPhone or the iPod Touch any time soon. This is just shotty advertising to sell people with iPhones anti-virus protection.

    In the mean time, I'll worry about Macs becoming infested with viruses before I worry about my iPod Touch.
