Update your phone lately? If not, you could be vulnerable to latest hacking attacks
iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C
Experts say Apple has patched a hole that could have exposed sensitive information to hackers.
Left unfixed, hackers could potentially read private communications sent over Apple devices: emails, instant messages, social media posts and even online bank transactions.
But experts say it’s unlikely any hackers did, since the vulnerability was first disclosed when Apple released a security patch over the weekend.
The patch fixes the issue in the most recent software available for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.
A fix is not yet available for the OS X software, the operating system for Apple computers.
Without the patch, a hacker could be what experts call a man-in-the-middle, it’s like a game of Telephone you don’t even know you’re playing.
