Apple iPad

The little Apple iPad could come complete with a big security hole

The awesome little iPad tablet computer from apple is still vulnerable to the hacks that were reported earlier. According to this article, ‘Once implemented, the hack can reportedly allow hackers to steal someone else’s email identity, reflash network devices with firmware, or trick Safari into doing “pretty much anything on any TCP port and not have any current IDS/IPS in existence be any wiser for it.”‘

The Safari browser has been patched on other platforms, but remains vulnerable on the iPad. User beware…
