PayPal iPhone App Updated for “Man-in-the-Middle” Threat

Posted on November 4th, 2010 by

PayPal’s iPhone app has been quickly updated to correct a vulnerability that could allow “man-in-the-middle” attacks. These can occur when users are on public networks, and can be fooled into connecting to rogue servers that claim to be those belonging to PayPal. If you use this app on your iOS device, check for updates on the App Store or with iTunes to get the latest version to be sure you are safe.
