Think that your IOS device is impervious?
Apple recently reported a
security issue in the Apple iOS which can be exploited to conduct
spoofing attacks. A spoofing attack is a situation in which one
person or program successfully masquerades as another by falsifying
data and could therefore capture or modify data in what seems to be
a secure session.
Patches for the mobile platform, iPhone, iTouch and iPad (7.0.6 –
for newer versions) (6.1.6 – for older versions) have been released.
Please ensure your devices are updated immediately.
A patch for the Mac OS is not yet available. Until then, Mac users
should exercise caution when surfing the web using Safari, Apple’s
native browser. You may use other browsers such as Chrome, Firefox,
and IE that do not contain the same vulnerability.
