IPhone Security Bypass Fix: Coming in September

Computer World cites an Apple representative as stating that a fix for the security bypass using the home button that I posted about on Wednesday will be available in September.

"The minor iPhone security issue, which surfaced this week, is fixed in a software update which will be released in September," said Apple spokeswoman Jennifer Bowcock in an e-mail Thursday.
Computer World also notes that the same issue was patched prior to the 2.0 release - patched versions were available in January 2008. Patch regression like this is a serious concern for enterprise and home users alike.
