Listen up, Perezcious iPhone users!
You’ve gotta update your cellies RIGHT NOW!
Apple introduced a new software update this week for it’s iOS7 and iOS6 operating systems, but not because they have any cool new features for you.
It’s because of a serious security risk!
A hole has been discovered in Apple’s mobile and desktop OSs that allows hackers to get into your iPhone, iPad, or computer via an unsecured Wi-Fi connection!
The problem is with the SSL/TLS, or Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security. These are where the conversations between your browser and the server you’re trying to access happen when you visit a website.
But with this new bug, there’s nothing secure about your connection!
The iOS fixes seem to patch up any potential problems but OS X Mavericks is still having issues, so you should stick to using Chrome or Firefox and NOT Safari for the time being!
Hopefully we warned you before anything or anyone got into your phone!
