You were not dreaming. A major security vulnerability in the iPhone's text messaging software was publicized on Thursday at the Black Hat security conference. The next day, Friday, Apple released a software patch to fix the vulnerability.

In their press release about the fix Apple even gave credit to the people who found the men who found the problem in the first place. They were not apple employees but worked for a company that tries to find weaknesses so the software companies can fix them before the bad guys find them and exploit them.
