Android, iOS, and OS X

[Updates:

1) ITSecurity blog updated to take into account OpenSSL’s advisory.

2) Patrick Wardle’s paper on Dylib hijacking on OS X is now available via the Virus Bulletin blog.]

I’ve just posted an article on ITSecurity.co.uk on Android exfiltration, OpenSSL, and iOS app memory handling (so I won’t cover those issues again here, but there are pointers to some articles that particularly interested me).

However, there are also a couple of interesting articles around on OS X security issues.

“As described by Macissues, users of recent Safari versions on the newest flavours of OSX are finding that so-called “private” URLs are turning up in the SQLite database that stores Favicons.”

The issue isn’t addressed by the new Safari update.
