Apple SSL Bug
Apple has released the patch for iOS, so if you have an Apple device running on iOS v6.x or higher (iPhone, iPad, or iPod), update it immediately. To update iOS and apply the patch, on your device goto (Settings>General>Software Update and apply the update. Apple released this update rather quietly, so you won’t be prompted to apply it (bad Apple, bad Apple).
Until you apply the patch to your device or machine, avoid using apps that rely on Apple’s SSL verification such as Safari and apps that rely on iCloud logins such as iMessage, FaceTime, Mail, PhotoStream, and any 3rd party apps that require certificate verification (such as banking and financial apps).
Apple has not yet release a patch for OSX, so if you have an Apple computer (Macbook, Macbook Pro, iMac), until Apple releases a patch and it is applied to your machine(s):
1) STOP USING THE SAFARI BROWSER and AVOID other apps that rely on Apple’s SSL (as mentioned above). Yes, the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome are NOT as vulnerable as they use a different set of code to verify the SSL certificates that are used for HTTPS:// websites. However, they are still potentially vulnerable so use them with care. For the time being try to avoid transferring your personal information as much as possible until the patch is released and applied to your machine(s)
2) AVOID UNTRUSTED AND UNSECURED WIFI ACCESS POINTS. This means any public WiFi spot (McDonald’s, Starbucks, your neighbors, etc.) unless you absolutely trust it. Not to sound too scary, but you don’t know who is on that network and they may be trolling for and intercepting your data.
Basically, practice good computer security, even after the patch is released and applied. Apple has not stated an expected release timeframe, only that they are working on a patch. I will send out more information when it becomes available.
