Apple Security Flaw = Apple users: You are exposed! Peace to Gizmodo

In short, It’s termed a “Man in the Middle” or MitM attack. Similiar to what the NSA has been doing to people and Nations all over the world, someone could intercept ALL information between you and whoever you are talking, texting, emailing, and most importantly, FINANCIAL INFORMATION.

“It’s as bad as you could imagine, that’s all I can say,” said Johns Hopkins University cryptography professor Matthew Green. (via Reuters article – see below)

And it’s been happening since 2012.

But hey, this news organization, and this journalist are not about the people believing the information we report. It’s about KNOWLEDGE. GNOSIS.
