iOS Exploit Shows Potential Keylogging Vulnerability

Two recently discovered vulnerabilities in Apple's iOS software have led to many questions about the integrity of iOS 7 and the future security of Apple devices.

The first vulnerability was fixed recently in an update for 7.0.6 in which the SSL security issue could potentially harm or gain access to a network. The other flaw was found by a security researcher from a company called FireEye which allowed a possible ‘not trusted' app to record the keystroke of every button and action you make on your device.

It seems that for the affected devices are iPhone and iPads running iOS 7.0.4 – 7.0.6. The most dangerous part is that the user would have no knowledge if their actions were being recorded and it does not stop at keystroke since the biometrics and touch ID's are able to be recorded as well.

This is shaping up to be a tough week for Apple and we should expect to see all hands on deck at Cupertino as I am sure the developers are already scrambling for a fix possibly before the upcoming release of iOS 7.1.
