  4. New bug POODLE leaves some data insecure, but it's easier to fix than Heartbleed and Shellshock

    Google researchers have discovered a vulnerability in the popular Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) tool that could allow attackers to perform so-called "man-in-the-middle" attacks to access encrypted private information. The vulnerability is called POODLE, and even though the majority of Web browsers have been updated to a version of SSL that doesn't feature the bug, hackers can force the browsers to use older, vulnerable versions of SSL to enable their attacks.

    A vulnerability in the tool used by many operating systems to interface with Unix's command prompt was revealed earlier this week, and many have declared that it's more dangerous than the infamous Heartbleed bug, largely because it offers complete access to compromised devices.

  7. Report: Apple knew about major iCloud security flaw six months before fixing

    Apple knew about a security problem with its iCloud website for at least six months before addressing it, according to a report from the Daily Dot. The fix came only after the service was wrongly blamed for enabling the celebrity photos leaked earlier this month. The report is based on emails between the security researcher who spotted the vulnerability and the Apple employees he contacted.
