Security updates for iOS 7



Apple has just released iOS 7.0.6, the sixth minor update to iOS 7. Both it and the new iOS 6.1.6 update which "provides a fix for SSL connection verification, SSL is an acronym for secure socket layer” which allows data to be encrypted when sent over the Internet.

Unlike iOS 7.0.5, which applied only to a few international iPhone 5S and 5C models, the version 7.0.6 update applies to all devices that can run iOS 7. iOS 6.1.6 applies to the iPhone 3GS and fourth-generation iPod touch.

Update has gone live on Apple's site for iOS 7.0.4 and 6.1.6 patch a vulnerability where "an attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS." The problem was resolved by restoring missing validation steps.
