Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Critical security threats such as the latest iOS 6/7 and MacOS bug are becoming more prevalent and may compromise confidential data if precautions are not taken, according to OpenVPN Technologies Inc. The OpenVPN security team is advising all iOS/Mavericks users who haven’t yet updated their OS to do so immediately. “An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS” according to an Apple support bulletin dated Feb 21, 2014, it can be found here; http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6147.
“What this means is that anytime you are on a public or private Wi-Fi network and doing activities such as online banking, Facebook, Gmail, or typing logins or passwords, this bug and other similar threats can leave you vulnerable to password, data, and identity theft,” according to Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN Technologies, Inc.
Dinha stated, "for the sake of convenience, people are unknowingly exposing themselves to data attacks at Wi-Fi locations including coffee shops, hotels, airports, or even at home.
