Re: Understanding Apple's SSL/TLS Bug

said by Shady Bimmer:

It is far more reaching than public wifi - although that is probably the most exposed starting point. The entire path and its dependencies (such as DNS) provides opportunities to exploit this vulnerability.

I don't like the sound of this. So, basically, if I want to be reasonably assured that my iTune's PW or using a CC # anywhere on the net isn't compromised, I will need to update to iOS 7.0.6. BAH!!

I guess this would be far reaching too for iPhone users on a cellular network.

Yes. For what it is worth I do not notice any slowdowns on my iPad 3. With the original release of 7 there was sluggishness with the virtual keyboard but that was all that was noticed. This was a known issue and has long since been fixed. Others may differ in their experiences.

Any network connectivity of any form. SSL is meant to provide end-to-end security and validation and without this anything between your device and the site you are using is a potential point of interception.

Yes this one is a nasty one
