Why Apple's Recent Security Flaw Is So Scary

On Friday, Apple quietly released iOS 7.0.6, explaining in a brief release note that it fixed a bug in which "an attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS." That's the understated version. Another way to put it? Update your iPhone right now.

Oh, and by the way, OS X has the same issues—except there's no fix out yet.

The Apple bug in question... means that Safari... can't actually know for sure if the servers it's talking to are who they say they are.
