I haven't jailbroken my iPhone. I have the blizzard authenticator KeyFob and have no intentions of switching from it. I am just questioning the amount of thought put into this. Okay, so everyone has made it clear that the apps are SandBoxed and tested to make sure their not "malicious" before ever going to the App store. Fine, great. Now what about my other idea I thought about. Everytime I plug my iPhone in, iTunes fires up and backs up my phone. I have read several others say that you can indeed restore from backup and the app will work again. This means that the data is stored on your computer. So again, given enough desire, a malicious app (keylogger) could mine this backup data and pull out your serial number and duplicate it onto another copy of the application. I know this is out there, but again, I'm simply saying, where there is a will (and there's going to continue to be a BIG will as long as people continue to buy gold) there is going to be a way.
