PSA: iOS users 5.1.1 update has important security patches in it


I normally wait a week or two to update my gf's iOS devices, but iOS 5.1.1 has what I would consider a critical patch for Safari, so already have it installed.

5.1.1 seems stable so far on her iPad, if I find any serious bugs with this pacth I will post update to this blog post.

Without the patch your vulnerable to Address Spoofing, which could be a real problem for purchases or online banking.

This website http://majorsecurity.net/ has proof of concept of the Safari Vulnerablity at http://majorsecurity.net/html5/ios51-demo.html

Stay Safe,
