DESCRIPTION:
Two vulnerabilities and a security issue have been reported in Apple
iPhone and iPod touch, which can be exploited by malicious people to
conduct cross-site scripting attacks, bypass certain security
restrictions, or to compromise a vulnerable device.

1) An unspecified error in the handling of URLs exists in Safari.
This can be exploited to cause a memory corruption when a user is
enticed to access a specially crafted URL.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

2) An error in the handling of emergency calls can be exploited to
bypass the Passcode Lock feature and allows users with physical
access to an iPhone to launch applications without the passcode.

This security issue is reported in iPhone v1.0 through v1.1.2 only.

3) An error in Safari can be exploited by malicious people to conduct
cross-site scripting attacks.
