iOS under hacking threats

Jake Basford

On Friday The Independent reported that iPhone and iPad users are being warned because there is a bug in iOS versions 7 and later that means that hackers could perform a ‘Masque Attack’ on their phones.

Advice is the same as for Android users, to not allow any other installer other than Apple App Store to install an app on the device, as phishing will open up the weakness the bug has created.

Although Apple played it down in a statement, this is released just months after iCloud security fails allowed several major celebrities to have their private photos hacked and released on the internet.
