According to an update from the Apple, a major flaw in their iOS mobile operating system found which could allow hackers to intercept email and other communications which are encrypted.
If an attacker has access to your network, such as sharing the same unsecured wireless service which are being offered by various restaurants, then attacker could see or alter changes between secured sites which we usually use such as Gmail and Facebook.
“It’s as bad as you could imagine, that’s all I can say,” said Johns Hopkins University cryptography professor Matthew Green.
There is not any evidence- whether the flaw was being exploieted in the wild or when it was found, Apple also didn’t tell about any information regarding this.
Now, Apple has released software patches and an update for the current version of iOS for iPhone 4 and later, 5th generation iPod touches, iPad 2 and later.
Before revealing this Flaw, if this was known by hackers, so your email or financial data may be exposed, but still there is not any evidence which proves that this Flaw was already exploited.
