iOS weakness could let attackers trick you into giving away your passwords
Well, now, another weakness threatens the name of Apple's security. A resourceful coder managed to find and exploit a chink in the iOS email app's armor – there is a way to trick it so that it stops ignoring HTML tags in emails. What this means is that the attacker can have a pop-up window, looking exactly like the one that iOS would draw, to come up and ask the user to log in to their iCloud again. Experienced users would definitely get a red light from such an occurrence, as an iCloud log-in is not something that you'd need to do midway through checking your email, but casual consumers would often no think twice about it.
It's safe to assume that Apple will be patching this up ASAP, but as of now – be careful when checking those emails, folks! In fact, it's a good idea to always stay vigilant for unusual password prompts, no matter the operating system you are using.
