Researchers Detail Widespread iOS Application Vulnerability

Security researchers and entrepreneurs Adi Sharabani and Yair Amit disclosed details about a widespread vulnerability affecting Apple’s iOS applications that would allow attackers to redirect app communications to servers under their control through HTTP hijacking. The researchers revealed the URL caching vulnerability in a session at the RSA Conference Europe in Amsterdam. The flaw is so widespread, that the pair decided it would be too difficult to approach each application developer individually, and so hope their RSA talk will get the word out more swiftly.
