iPhone security problems?

Was reading up on security focus recently (one of my fave sites) and noticed quite a few iPhone posts of late.

The phone's already been opened up to try to find security flaws, etc. So there seem to be issues with Safari (although this is not an iPhone specific problem) as well as bluetooth (good old bluetooth hacks, will they ever end? hehe). The researchers still indicate that it is one of the most secure smartphones out there ( ).

Interestingly, Apple is handling the updates through iTunes which seems like a great idea considering carriers aren't set up to do this properly and most mobiles don't have a good firmware/software update model. Although the choice to run all processes with full admin privileges seems a tad crazy! See here...

Apparently there will be more information released tomorrow by one researcher so that should be interesting.
