Security researcher unearths serious iOS and Android Wi-Fi exploit

iOS and Android

Security researcher Gal Beniamini -- who works for Google's Project Zero -- recently unearthed a serious vulnerability affecting the Wi-Fi chipsets used in both iOS and Android devices. Detailing the proof-of-concept attack at length, Beniamini explains in an interesting blogpost how an attacker within range on a shared Wi-Fi network could potentially execute arbitrary code on a targeted device.

By chaining together a pair of exploits, Beniamini managed to demonstrate a "full device takeover by Wi-Fi proximity alone, requiring no user interaction." The attack was deemed to be serious enough that Apple wasted no time in patching up the vulnerability, having released iOS 10.3.1 earlier in the week.

iPhone users are going to want Twitter’s latest update

iPhone storage hack

There's a new Twitter update out today. I know this news normally ranks just above the latest Windows Update in terms of interest, but the new version of the app brings a feature that could clean out a whole bunch of space on your iPhone.

The update adds storage options to the Twitter app. If you go to Settings-->Storage, you can see what content you currently have cached. I didn't even know that Twitter cached any more data than a couple recent tweets, so I was a little shocked (and just a touch annoyed) to see it's been hogging a couple hundred megabytes.
