A security weakness has been found in the Safari browser of the Apple iPhone, following research by security firm Radware.

The company said users will remain exposed to the fault until Apple issues an update, according to IT Pro.

Users can be led by spam mail to a HTML page containing Javascript where a denial of service problem will crash the browser and possibly the entire iPhone, reports the news provider.

Itzik Kotler, security operation centre manager at Radware, told reporters: "While vendors are struggling to push new products and applications, it is evident that security still remains a secondary concern."

He added that hackers continue to target consumers' software and they are helped by "design flaws embedded into software products."

The news follows reports this week by the BBC that simple mistakes made by web designers in handling the information travelling between a web server and its browser program are putting visitors to innocent websites at risk.
