New Denial-of-Service Exploit Found In Mobile Safari

Apple iPhone Safari browser is vulnerable to DoS attacks due to a design flaw that may be triggered by a series of memory allocation operations on the dynamic memory pool, which in turn triggers a bug in the garbage collector. The security hole is currently unpatched, leaving iPhone owners vulnerable to potential attacks until Apple issues a security update.

Apple has yet to comment.
