Critical Apple iOS Security Update Needed — Feb 25, 2014
Last Friday, Apple released a software update to fix a serious secruity weakness in its iOS mobile operating system that allows attackers to read and modify encrypted communications on iPhones, iPads, and other iOS devices. The flaw allows an attacker to intercept, read, or modify encrypted email, Web browsing, tweets, and other transmitted data, provided the attacker has control over the WiFi or cellular network used by the vulnerable device. On Friday, Apple issued a patch that it said fixed the problem. We strongly recommend to our members who use Apple devices to download the patch, which is free.
