According to UK carrier O2, the SMS-based iPhone security hole that Charlie Miller unveiled on Black Hat this week should be patched by this weekend. An O2 spokesperson claimed the update would be pushed through iTunes this Saturday, says BBC. Apple hasn't made a comment yet, and it's not perfectly clear that this will be an update for iPhones worldwide, but hopefully that's the case -- the security flaw certainly isn't geographically limited.
