Security firms are warning of a vulnerability in Apple’s iOS for iPhone, iPad and iPod. Symantec said that it could be exploited by remote attackers to take complete control of a vulnerable device. Experts said that the threat, at present, only exists on paper but that Apple need to issue a fix before it becomes a reality. Apple said that the company was aware of the report and was investigating. The problem lies in the way Apple’s Mobile Safari handles Adobe Acrobat PDF documents. As the browser automatically opens PDF files, a hacker could embed malicious code into this file.
