iPhone 4 raw SMS PDU Exploit – Effects and Replication

WP_iOSalertThe Text Messaging community had in effect, an earthquake last week, due to a discovery by pod2g. It was discovered that iOS shows the SMS UDH Reply Address within the user interface, instead of the original source number. In a nutshell you can send message from a normal on-net handset that appear to be coming from elsewhere to iPhone devices.

Different carriers will have different ways of dealing with the UDH content and you may find that your carrier strips it out, but on Vodafone New Zealand, the UDH data is transmitted fully to the recipient handset. It [...]

Introducing Messenger VI

Sometimes it feels like the more things change the more they stay the same and you are right… Messenger has changed so much in the last 10 years it almost looks exactly the same as it did in 2003.  Sure, we have added new features like email2sms, bulk sender, expanded address books, a mobile interface and more but it looks much the same as it did the night the Govenator said good night to both his families and went off to rescue Cali.

Erin, our new designer, impressed us in her second interview with a vision for the future of Messenger.  It was not hard to see how it would [...]
