If you have an iPhone, iPod or iPad you will want to make sure you are running the newly released operating system update – iOS 7.0.6. It’s available for:

  • iPhone 4 and later models
  • 5-th generation iPod touches
  • iPad 2 and later models

The update includes software patches to fix what’s been labelled as the ‘gotofail’ or SSL encryption bug.

The ‘gotofail’ security bug was making it possible for hackers to monitor the exchange of potentially sensitive communications.

Therefore, avoid conducting sensitive business over your iPhone, iPad or iPod until you have updated your device’s operating system.
