Samsung and Apple tipped friendly on chips

This week a tip has come in from Korea that Apple may well have made up and shaken hands with Samsung for future chip production. This would be a multi-billion-dollar deal as it would remove TSMC from the equation, pushing Samsung back into the limelight for Apple device innards.

The chip chop talk goes back to 2012 and springs forward to the Apple iPhone 6 chip - not made by Samsung.

The malware, which harvested user data from infected computers and connected mobile devices, was branded as "unprecedented" due to its way of spreading and the amount of personal data it could gain through it.

Apple released a tool to fix this - you can now de-register numbers from iMessage. Apparently they did not release said tool fast enough, as Judge Lucy Koh is on the case.

New ‘Masque Attack’ iOS phishing vulnerability sideloads apps

On the heels of WireLurker, a new iOS threat has been discovered. This one, called Masque attack, could be a lot more problematic, too.
