Hundreds of thousands of mobile applications for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod utilize a networking software known as AFNetworking. It was recently revealed by cybersecurity firm SourceDNA that a particular version of the AFNetworking software, which is used by roughly 100,000 applications, contains a vulnerability that allows hackers to easily bypass SSL, meaning that data such as login credentials and banking information could be leaked. Luckily not all 100,000 applications that run on Apple devices are vulnerable, as SourceDNA acknowledged that currently, about 1,000 applications remain vulnerable to the security flaw. Some of the affected iOS applications include Uber, OneDrive, and Yahoo Finance.
