Have you Updated your iPhone and iPad yet? IOS 7.0.6

iPhone Security Hacks

Friday 2/21/2014, Apple released security update iOS 7.0.6 for its iPhone, iPad and iPod devices to fix a vulnerability which allowed an attacker to capture and modify secure web traffic from the devices. Yeah, not good.

Data Security

Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS

Description: Secure Transport failed to validate the authenticity of the connection. This issue was addressed by restoring missing validation steps.



The update is available from your device via Settings –> General –> Software Update on iPhone 4 and later, iPod Touch (5th Gen) and iPad 2 or later. Apple also released iOS 6.1.6 for the iPhone 3GS and iPod touch (4th Gen) devices. So if you still have a device make sure to get it updated as well.

    Nope. I jailbroke, waiting to see when a new jailbreak version comes out. Actually, I am sure Evasi0n will work. that is usually the most up-to-date:

      I haven’t updated either because my phone is jailbroken too. Are you saying you think you can update and then use Evasi0n 7 and rejailbreak successfully or that the Evasi0n 7 jailbreak already takes care of the security hole?
