iPhone security broken by just plugging into Linux

  • I get that it's a bug, but is this really that bad? How many people really keep sensitive data on their cell phones? And if the number is large, I'm not sure that the iphone's security is the issue as much as the fact the people are putting sensitive data on them. Perhaps that's unfair if the iPhone uses "we secure your data" as a marketing bullet point, I've never looked into buying an iphone so I don't know. In my mind, "yay I can access iPhone as a hard drive, and sync [b]without itunes[/b]", and that
