ImperialViolet - Apple's SSL/TLS bug

Keith Custers's insight:

For those who missed it, more details on Apple's  hilarious "goto fail" vulnerability. Quite sure this will get recorded in cyber history books. IOS 7.1 patches this vulnerability. But what is worse; after 5 days of public release Macos X 10.9 is still vulnerable. More and more reports are coming in this vulnerability is actively used on the internet. @ Apple When do we get an update? Another worrying aspect this vulnerability has been out there since at least March 2013. :(
