Security researcher Ariel Sanchez recently published a fascinating report on the sort of security you can expect if you do your internet banking on an iPhone or iPad.
The answer, sadly, seems to be, "Very little."
With the holiday season approaching and lots of super good deals being offered around the American Thanksgiving holiday, retailers aren't the only ones looking to make a buck.
"Honey, why are the lights flashing 'URPWN3D' in Morse code?"
If you spent a cool $60 each on light globes (bulbs) from the Apple store...
...how much security would you expect?
iPhones and iPads will be vulnerable until they get the iOS 7 update, which is scheduled for release later this year. Until then, you might want to avoid plugging into sleazy charging stations, though truth be told, a successful attack sounds kind of James Bond-ishly esoteric.
Apple just released iOS 6.1.4 for the iPhone 5.
Apparently, it improves speakerphone calls, but it doesn't fix the lock-screen bug in iOS 6.1.3...

Anyone else getting a sense of Deja Vu?

A hacker claims he was disclosing a security flaw responsibly.

Facebook users are being targeted in a scam that offers them the opportunity to get their hands on a free iPad Mini.
Apple was eager to promote the many new features in iOS6, but avoided mention of one: IFA - or identifier for advertisers - the company's newest device tracking technology.
The internet is abuzz with whispers that Apple's iPhone 5, rumoured to be launched this week, will come with a fingerprint scanner to secure the device. If true, this could be a big step forward in iPhone's quest to become a digital wallet, but will convenience-crazy iPhone users embrace biometrics?
A recent poll shows that people use their electronic devices on planes, RF interference be damned. Is the lack of planes dropping like shot ducks proof that the ban is illogical, or is electromagnetic emissions pollution more subtle and intermittent than that?
A techie named David Schuetz has done something so obvious, so simple, and so tellingly useful, that I'm going to go all out and call it a stroke of genius.
