    I'm sure it will be fixed by 4.1 if it isn't in 4.0.

    Yeah, but 4.0 is a ways away. They really need to fix it now with 3.2.1.

    I suppose.

    They did address that one SMS vulnerability fairly quickly.
    They'll probably fix it in 4.0. They have 6 days to do it.

    Ah, wasn't thinking about the iPad when I typed that.
    ...And that's what this mess happened on >_<

    Gah, sorry. Messed up.

    Yeah, Apple will defiantly release a patch soon for it.
    Be it now or when 4.0 comes out.

    Everything has a million of bugs. We just didn't find them.

    Cmon guys, it's apple.

    We're more likely to fix bugs before they are.

    Don't use mobile safari til then. There's plenty of other good browsers out there, like opera mini or bolt.
