Masque Attack: Why Your iPhone is Probably Safe - Happy Veteran's Day

 "Masque Attack sounds like an ominous threat to the iPhone and iPad because it lets attackers replace legit apps with their own malicious versions. Getting those on your iOS device, however, involves some trickery and interaction on your part. The security flaw is serious, but it isn't likely to hit you."

Aunk's Commentary:

Another example of why Iphone is the mobile computing gold standard in security.

There is not an abundance of big security holes for the bad guys to exploit becauce the ecosystem is a contained well managed envronment.

You will note from this piece that anytime there is the slightest hint of a hole, the globle experts report it publicly, as they also probably have Iphones.

Contrast this with so called "Open" ecosystems like windows and Android. 95% of all malware is targeted at this environment.

As an American on this Veterens Day I am reminded of my constitutional right to be secure in my papers and property. No on in moble computing does a better job of securing that right for me then Job's Apple.

Shout out to my Dad Marlin on this Veteren's Day. Hetep and Respect Dad.
