Watch the video on hacking the iPhone

To find out the iPhone’s state of security, Fast Company magazine purchased an iPhone for Rik Farrow, a UNIX specialist and consultant from Sedona, Arizona, and commissioned him to crack through its defenses, which he did using H D Moore’s Metasploit, a popular platform for testing security systems.

In this video Farrow was able to take complete control of an iPhone and demonstrated the ability to eavesdrop on conversations, intercept voice mail and email and upload nefarious software programs.

Update (February 2016): Multimedia file removed, as it was using Adobe Flash.
