Jason Hiner's 22 most useful iPad apps | TechRepublic | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Keep in mind that this list is skewed toward professionals and technophiles who are using the iPad on a daily basis, but I also realize that these folks tend to use tablets like the iPad for non-work stuff as well, like reading the news in the morning during breakfast or a little entertainment on the plane during a business flight.

 

If you'd prefer to view this as a list instead of a photo gallery, then see the companion blog post http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/hiner/the-ipads-most-useful-apps-updated-for-2012/10373

Secunia’s Chief Security Specialist hopes Apple will work better with researchers in the future and provide more informative status updates and estimated fix dates.

 

”It's regretful to experience that there are still some major software vendors that do not understand how to properly work with researchers,” Eiram added.

 

“Hopefully, Apple will in the future strive to work better with researchers to ultimately protect their customers by providing more informative status updates and estimated fix dates instead of prioritizing antiquated internal policies higher.”

Jailbreaking BYOD Control. Is Apple iOS ready for enterprise primetime?

Jailbreaking BYOD Control. Is Apple iOS ready for enterprise primetime? | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Consumerization is happening now, but many IT departments simply aren’t prepared to deal with the new challenges and complexities it entails.

 

With IT managers increasingly urged by CEOs to stop saying ‘no’ and start supporting consumer tools, they need to reappraise their traditional approach. Put simply, IT needs flexible standards – they can’t say no but neither can they say yes to everyone.

 

Cyber crime is a multi billion dollar industry, funded and resourced like legitimate business operations. The criminal gangs need to know that any investment in their own resources is going to provide a decent return, and the best way of guaranteeing that is by targeting the one large homogenous platform, just as they did with Windows in the 90s. In the mobile world, this means iOS.

 

What is clear is that Apple is not the panacea for secure, manageable consumer devices in the enterprise that many believe.

The Flashback malware, which Intego pointed out was infecting an increasing number of Macs, turns out to be using a novel technique to operate. Many types of malware use command and control servers that they connect to, in order to get instructions from the creators of the malware.

 

The problem with using these servers is that their IP addresses are specified in the malware code, and the servers can generally be taken down.

A new malware variant sets out to punish those who haven’t been keeping up to date with updates.

 

Patching OS X is so simple, but yet there are people who still put it off. A new malware variant sets out to punish those who haven’t been keeping up to date with updates.

 

The new variant is a Trojan horse called ‘Flashback.G’ and is makes use of two exploits found on older versions of the Java runtime. Users with macs running OS X 10.6 ‘Snow Leopard’ are particularly at risk since this version came with Java preinstalled while 10.7 ‘Lion’ did not.

 

According to security firm Intego, this malware uses three tricks to try to get itself installed onto a system: read more...
