Mac iOS 4.3.5 Fixes Data Security Issue

Last week Apple released iOS 4.3.5 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and iOS 4.2.10 for iPhone with Verizon service. It addresses a flaw with the certificate chain validation process when handling X.509 certificates.

According to Apple, “An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS. Other attacks involving X.509 certificate validation may also be possible.”

Users of the above devices can take the update via iTunes on their PC or Mac.
