Default SMS touch a security and privacy nightmare for iOS users

This report is from David Bisson:

SMS touch a security and privacy nightmare for iOS users
Plaintext data transmissions make $1.99 app a spoofer’s delight…

This isn't the first iOS app that's threatened users' privacy and security, and it certainly won't be the last. With that said, iOS users should in most cases download apps from only trusted developers on Apple's App Store. If they don't recognize a developer, they should research them and read the reviews of a particular app before they proceed with installation.
