iPhone Jailbreaking Could Crash Cellphone Towers, Apple Claims

The nation's cellphone networks could suffer "potentially catastrophic" cyberattacks by iPhone-wielding hackers at home and abroad if iPhone owners are permitted to legally jailbreak their shiny wireless devices - that's what Apple claims.

A jailbroken iPhone is a weapon of mass disruption, Apple claims.
The Copyright Office is considering a request by the Electronic Frontier Foundation to legalize the widespread practice of jailbreaking, in which iPhone owners hack their devices to accept software that hasn't been approved for distribution through the iPhone App Store. Apple made the claim in comments filed last week (.pdf) with the agency.

The story is too old to be commented.
