Apple Remotely Fixes Siri Security Vulnerability

Apple has remotely fixed a security vulnerability with Siri that allowed access to a user’s contacts and photos without a passcode.We posted on the flaw yesterday as discovered by Jose Rodriguez. The procedure involved using Siri to initiate a Twitter search then using a 3D Touch gesture on contact information to bring up the Quick Actions menu. Tapping Add to Existing Contact brought up your full contact list and adding a photo to the contact brought up your entire photo library.Apple has now blocked the ability to perform a Twitter Search without entering your passcode first. This resolves the security risk but may annoy some users who use that feature frequently.Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
