Welcome to the security party, Apple!

Apple fans can now stop ripping on Windows for the constant stream of critical updates.

security failIt has been found a few days ago that all versions of iOS and OSX have a gaping security hole in the components that are supposed to encrypt secure connections for services such as mail, twitter, imessage and even web sessions in Safari.

The flaw means that an attacker on the same network as you can perform what is known as a man in the middle attack and impersonate the server by issuing a fake security certificate used to validate secure connections.
By doing this, the attacker is able to eavesdrop on the secure connection between you and your friends, email services and even your bank.

This affects all versions of iOS, OSX and safari. Using alternative web browsers while waiting to get the update is recommended if an update is not available right now.
