Apple officials announced this weekend that a new security update is available for many customers who could be victimized by a security flaw that lets hackers easily infiltrate their iPhone or iPad when the device is connected to a public WiFi connection.

Laurens ten Hagen‘s insight:

 

The company first announced that security researchers had discovered a flaw in the Secure Socket Layer (SSL), where hackers were able to monitor, steal, or change email and login credentials. Customers who own products with iOS versions 6.1.5, 7.0.4, and 7.0.5 as well as OS X 10.9.0 and 10.9.1 are known to be especially vulnerable, according to Ars Technica.
