    via Busniess Week:

    A new vulnerability has been identified called "Fake ID". This vulnerability can allow hackers to impersonate other application and take control of your phone, and the personal information you may be storing there.

    Scary stuff. Especially since most of us do not have a fix yet:

    Maybe calls to our vendors will get the ball rolling?
