Warning iPhone Owners Do Not Use Web Dialer

This could be a serious threat to iPhone users security…

Using the phone’s Safari browser to make calls could let attackers track the user’s calls, prevent calls from being made at all, or redirect calls to 900-numbers.

The feature can be used by attackers to track the user’s calls or redirect the user’s intended call to a number the attacker chooses, according to Billy Hoffman, the lead researcher at SPI Labs. A flaw in the feature also enables attackers to put the iPhone in an infinite loop where it continues to try making calls until the user actually turns the device off.
