Apple iPhone Security Breach Found

Posted on Tuesday 8 October 2013

News reports are trickling through tech blogs, but it appears iOS 7 has a big security weakness. German experts were able to crack the finger print iPhone security feature simply with the aid of a cell phone camera. Now on the one hand, doubt national security rests on iPhone (Obama has a BlackBerry) and owners should keep them on hand at all times, but makes you wonder if you want your lawyer, doctor or accountant using an iPhone, or if they should trade in the “cool” factor, for the security of a BlackBerry. After all, despite all the panic, BlackBerry sold it’s BES 10 to 60 percent of Fortune 500 companies this year.

It would seem this latest security flaw with iPhone just confirms that BlackBerry remains the undisputed secure phone and messaging system, and that Apple efforts at “security” are more gimmicks and games than function.

We wonder when the main stream media will pick up this story, as the #1 phone in North America having a major security flaw would seem of interest to Canadian and American cellular customers.

    Recently Apple has also warned iPhone, iPad and laptop users to avoid doing mobile banking over wireless networks as information may be accessed by others. As most users, especially of mobile products and laptops, are heavy wifi users, any banking concerns over wireless is cause for concern for users of the majority of Apple products. Having to dust off the desktop must have Android and BlackBerry users laughing at users of more expensive, oft replaced and updated iPhones.
