Elena Rybolevla, the former wife of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolevlev, was detained and subsequently conditionally released in Cyprus on Monday in connection to the alleged theft of a diamond ring estimated to be worth 25 million euros.

...one of the couple's daughters, Ekaterina, bought the Greek private island of Skorpios last year.

Second Apple iOS security flaw exposed

Security researchers have discovered a new flaw in Apple’s iOS that could expose every action the user takes to a third party, even down to each letter and number typed.

Researchers claim that the attack is only at the “proof-of-concept” stage and there is no evidence that it has been used outside of a lab. And the group have informed Apple of their work and claim to be “collaborating on the issue”.

The attack works on even the latest version 7.0.4 of iOS and on non-jailbroken iPhones.

The iOS flaw is the second to be exposed in recent days.

"It's as bad as you could imagine, that's all I can say," Johns Hopkins University cryptography professor Matthew Green told Reuters.

Apple refused to comment.
