That was a hack. It used the same weakness to access the phone, but was the result of an individual sending an SMS. This is a worm, that can apparently propogate itself. That is, if it all turns out to be true.

 But... But... It's running MacOS. Macs don't get Virus'! Only PC's get Virus'! Those people must have installed Winderz somehow on their iPhone. Thats the only way it could have happened. MacOS is the most secure thing ever!
