iOS update fixes browser vulnerabilities
The latest iOS update fixes a whole range of security vulnerabilities, around 20 of which permitted remote code injection and execution. Apple has also belatedly revoked the compromised Türktrust certificates.
Although the updates fix a large number of extremely critical security vulnerabilities, there is no need to panic – to date there has not been a single known case of such a security vulnerability being exploited to compromise an iPhone or iPad. Although the theoretical possibility has been demonstrated (by programs such as Jailbreakme), the difficulty involved in doing so has clearly deterred would-be fraudsters.
