Apple Addresses “Triple Handshake” Bug

Last Tuesday, April 22, Apple released iOS 7.1.1 to address 19 flaws in the mobile operating system, including a critical flaw in the secure transport mechanism that could be exploited with “triple handshake” attacks to expose user data.

Apple also released Security Update 2014-002 with updates for OS X Lion (10.7.x), Mountain Lion (10.8.x), and Mavericks (10.9.x) to address a number of flaws, including the triple handshake bug.

Users should update as soon as possible.
