New vulnerability found in iOS apps using wi-fi travelin cat msg:4619845 5:45 pm on Oct 29, 2013 (gmt 0)
The vulnerability allows attackers to persistently alter the server URL from which a mobile app loads its data, so that instead of loading data from realserver.com, for instance, the attack makes the app load data from attacker.com, without the victim knowing.

“The vulnerability affects so many apps that it’s virtually impossible to alert app makers,” said Yair Amit, Skycure’s chief technology officer. Loading all these different Apps from different makers just not good sense. Every were I turn I see a company with their app. Your business if you load this on your phone but... Thanks for the heads up travelin cat I have been warning my family about all the crap they load on their phones maybe this will allow them to see they need to be removed. lucy24 msg:4620156 9:15 pm on Oct 30, 2013 (gmt 0)
Speaking as an iOS7 user: Once you have "iOS" and "WiFi" in the same sentence, things can only go downhill.
