[Tech ARP] Apple iOS (And OS X) Have A Critical Security Hole And The Fix Is Here

Recommended Posts

 

 

Dear editor,

 

 

 

We have just posted an article called *Apple iOS (And OS X) Have A Critical

Security Hole And The Fix Is Here*.

 

 

Quote : On Friday, the 21st of February, Apple acknowledged that they had a

critical security hole in their iOS operating system. It was specifically

an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) vulnerability in iOS and OS X that exposes iOS

and OS X devices to a "man in the middle" attack.

 

Apparently, Apple used "raw OpenSSL for HTTPS, but didn't include hostname

verification". This is a glaring flaw because it would allow anyone with a

valid SSL certificate to masquerade as a trusted website to harvest your

communications or login information.

 

There is speculation that this could well be the security hole which the

NSA exploited to insert the DROPOUTJEEP software implant, probably using

automatic updates via SSL.
