Some Of Your Apple Products Could Be Easily Hacked

Posted: Updated:

The latest versions of Apple's IOS 7 software fails to encrypt email attachments, leaving the user vulnerable to hackers. That's according to German security expert Andreas Kurtz.

He tested for the flaw in an Iphone 4, Iphone 5s and Ipad 2. Kurtz was able to access email attachments on a locked device -- just by plugging it into a computer and using some passcode-bypassing software.

He first reported the findings on his personal blog on April 23. There was no immediate comment from Apple about his findings or whether the company is doing anything to solve the problem.
