Apple security update fixes iOS vulnerability

Apple security update fixes iOS vulnerability | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
The tech giant fixes a security problem in iOS that affected encrypted connections. Apple on Friday released the latest update of its mobile operating system. It's of note because it fixes an SSL connection issue, an important encryption vulnerability.




SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is one of the most basic forms of encrypting Internet traffic. Without it, almost anybody can see what you're doing online. According to Apple's fulldescription of the update, the software previously had problems validating the authenticity of the connection, and the software fix restores steps that were missing in the validation process.

Apple has never described exactly what its process is for ensuring the titles in its App Store are safe.


Although the comparatively fewer reports of rogue apps for iOS suggest that the review process is more stringent than Google's, the report ticket from Tor's high-ranking members suggests that Apple may not be doing everything it can or should do to protect iPhone and iPad users.

Apple and the SSL/TLS bug: Open questions

Apple and the SSL/TLS bug: Open questions | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
[UPDATE] It says something about Apple's priorities that they fixed the iOS version of a very serious bug but left Mac users conspicuously vulnerable.


The SSL bug Apple patched on iOS on Friday is a shocking and embarrassing one. That it appears to have been in both iOS and OS X for some time and the way Apple is addressing it show both that Apple knows how serious it is and that Mac users play second fiddle in Apple's orchestra. 

Apple has only released a patch for iOS, not OS X.


Make no mistake about it, this is a very serious bug. The bug makes it fairly straightforward to intercept and decrypt SSL/TLS communications, probably the most important security protocol there is today.


Any time you see Apple (or really any major vendor) release an update that fixes a single bug, you can be sure it's a high-priority bug. And there's no reason to believe that it's higher-priority for iOS users than for Mac users.


So why did they not fix OS X at the same time? Because OS X isn't top priority anymore.

Former Apple Security Engineer To Apple: 'Fix Your Sh-t'

Former Apple Security Engineer To Apple: 'Fix Your Sh-t' | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
If it wasn't yet clear to Apple that its 'gotofail' security flaw has the undivided attention of the information security industry, one of its own recently departed star engineers just spelled out the severity of that bug in highly profane terms. "WHAT THE EVER LOVING F**K, APPLE??!?!!" wrote former Apple security [...]


Paget, a well-regarded researcher who left her position on Apple’s security team for a job at Tesla just earlier this month, wrote perhaps the most scathing critique yet of the company’s security response to its “gotofail” bug, which would allow a wide array of Apple programs’ SSL-encrypted communications to be hijacked, eavesdropped or corrupted. The vulnerability, which earned its nickname due to being caused by a single misplaced “goto” command in Apple’s code, was patched Friday for iOS.


But researchers quickly found that it affected Apple’s desktop OSX software as well, ===> and the company has yet to fix the desktop version of the bug. <===

New to Mac? Four security tips you need to know

New to Mac? Four security tips you need to know | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

“The fundamental difference is that there are a LOT less malware threats and hacking attacks directed at Mac users than there are against Windows users.  Both can be attacked (and are), but normally it’s Windows users in the firing line. As I like to put it – I can get killed in Baghdad or Bournemouth.  

.

Neither is 100% safe, but one is definitely less risky than the other. Both OSes require up-to-date anti-virus, security patches, best practices and a good healthy serving of common sense to keep them out of trouble.”

.

So while Mac OS X enjoys a deservedly good reputation for security, there are steps any user can take to protect themselves – against loss, password theft, and to protect your most important files.  Whether your shiny new Mac is for work – or for home – here’s how to get started.

Java-based malware driving DDoS botnet infects Windows, Mac, Linux devices

Java-based malware driving DDoS botnet infects Windows, Mac, Linux devices | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Multi-platform threat exploits old Java flaw, gains persistence.

 

Researchers have uncovered a piece of botnet malware that is capable of infecting computers running Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux that have Oracle's Java software framework installed.

 

The cross-platform HEUR:Backdoor.Java.Agent.a, as reported in a blog post published Tuesday by Kaspersky Lab, takes hold of computers by exploiting CVE-2013-2465, a critical Java vulnerability that Oracle patched in June. The security bug is present on Java 7 u21 and earlier. Once the bot has infected a computer, it copies itself to the autostart directory of its respective platform to ensure it runs whenever the machine is turned on.

 

Compromised computers then report to an Internet relay chat channel that acts as a command and control server.
