The infamous SMS spoofing exploit that was exposed by iOS hacker pod2g, has apparently been repaired with the release of iOS 6. The bug was a security vulnerability that allowed people to spoof their SMS’s. This bug is not new to iOS as it has been vulnerable since the first very iPhone. Apple has worked long and hard to provide it’s users with the best security that we have seen yet, so they have patched this as well as many other exploits.
With tweets coming in from iOS hackers alike, they are all commenting on just how many exploits have been patched in the new operating system.
One of these hackers by the name of Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja), tweeted that pod2g’s exploit had been fixed and also expressed amazement with just how many exploits Apple has managed to patch since the last release of iOS.

I’m definitely content with iOS 6 knowing that they beefed up their security, however this will make it more difficult for jailbreakers to bring an untethered jailbreak to iOS 6.
