Intrepidus Group announced that they’ve identified dangerous vulnerabilities in the Palm Pre WebOS. The vulnerabilities illustrate one more reason why we would NEVER use an off-the-shelf mobile device for online banking or anything else really sensitive. Even if the on-line bank app was written without security flaws [which is more than doubtful], flaws in the underlying OS [or Trojan horses embedded in other apps] just make it way too dangerous. Don’t be lulled by the fact that Palm has already released an update to WebOS. Remember the mantra: All complex software is flawed and has vulnerabilities.
