Security analysts have long predicted that hackers who routinely pester computer users would eventually target smart phones, whose advanced network connections and operating systems continue to become more computer-like. Indeed, smart-phone virus outbreaks have been reported in Europe and Asia.

Yet ISE was able to hack into a New York Times reporter’s iPhone when it (voluntarily) visited a special Web site they created, which uploaded malicious software and gave the "hackers" unlimited access to files and phone functions. (Note: The embedded link will take you to the New York Times Web site, which may display an online ad before presenting its story on hacking the iPhone.)

ISE has sent its recommendations for security patches to Apple. In the meantime, it offers these tips for iPhone and other smart-phone owners to minimize risk:

Only visit Web sites you know
Only use Wi-Fi networks you trust
Don’t open Web links from e-mails
