Note. In the podcast, we discuss the Siri lock screen bug. Then we wonder if Apple’s public comments on this flaw (and on the recent OS X SSL bug) might indicate a softening of Apple’s traditional “say nothing until it’s done and dusted” approach to security. In fact, Apple’s public comments were on the OS X SSL bug and a recently-discovered iOS encryption flaw, not the Siri lock screen hole. Sorry about that. We nevertheless still hope that Apple is showing signs of loosening up its attitude to security notifications!
