Most people who lifted their shiny iPhones and pressed upgrade to iOS5 button, were looking for a better battery life that can get them more rounds of Angry Birds. The reality is that Apple’s latest updated was dealing with something a lot more important.
A week ago Accuvant LABS computer security researcher Charlie Miller uncovered a major security flaw that gives hackers a way to build apps that look and act legit but then downloads unproved code to your phone. Apple have always been known for having a tight grip on their app store and such incident shows that no system is fully secure from hackers attacks.
Miller even demonstrated by creating his own app that does that and got it fully approved by Apple and then did a video of what the app can do. His app have been now removed and his license revoked.
