Kids: just say no to XML

Oh no:

The iPhone recently fell victim to its first Trojan attack….

Security blog F-Secure warns users to be wary, however; speaking to the modding community, blogger Jarno writes “Hopefully this serves as a warning for those who have opened their iPhones using a security hole in the system and then installing unverified software without a second thought to what they are doing.”

He continues, “This time it was an 11-year-old kid playing with XML files who created the trojan. Next time it might be someone else with more skills and with specific target.” [emphasis mine]
