Can’t upgrade to iOS 8? Beware bugs in the system
The issue, also confirmed by Apple, is fixed in iOS 8, which was released on Sept. 17. The company pulled a patch released about a week later, iOS 8.0.2, due to widespread Touch ID and cellular issuescaused by the software update. Yet, users can still get the security benefits of the move to iOS 8 by installing the original update.
For the many users of older Apple iPhones, such as the iPhone 4, which cannot upgrade to iOS 8, a patch is unlikely to be forthcoming, security experts said.
While the exploit allows an attacker to run code on the compromised device, they may only be able to run legitimate applications, a restriction imposed on all but jailbroken phones.
