+ - Malicious Websites Can Initiate iPhone Calls->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In this article, security researcher Nitesh Dhanjani shows how iOS insecurely launches 3rd party apps via registered URL handlers. Malicious websites can abuse this to launch arbitrary applications, such as getting the Skype.app to make arbitrary phone calls without asking the user. Dhanjani lists what developers of iOS apps can do to design their software securely and what Apple can do to help out. Great read!"
