Im sure its a valid vulnerability but I dont see some hacker texting thousands of Iphones unless he manages to figure out how to do it for free through the net, and then the telecomunications providers become responsible for blocking him and would probably act fairly fast.

Apple releases iPhone firmware 3.0.1  Wink

"Apple has responded to the security alert reported yesterday about the iPhone being vulnerable by SMS, where a hacker could lock up your iPhone, rending it useless, or even take control over it remotely."
