Mailbox App Allows HTML Emails to Execute Malicious Javascript Code



Michele Spagnuolo, a well-known security expert and blogger, has recently reported about a Mailbox vulnerability that allows any Javascript contained in the body of the email to be executed in the app.

Here’s what he writes (via iClarified):

This is bad for security and privacy, because it allows advanced spam techniques, tracking of user actions, hijacking the user by just opening an email, and, using an exploitation framework, potentially much worse things. The app also loads external images without offering an option to disable this behavior.

Mailbox developers have reacted very fast - they promise this security breach will be patched within few hours.

And here’s what you can actually do using the malicious Javascript code:

Apple Seeds iOS 7 GM to Developers



Apple’s developers can now freely download iOS 7 GM (stands for Gold Master). This is the final version of the Apple’s most recent and yet unreleased operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. As it was previously announced, iOS 7 will become available for ordinary users on September 18th.

You need to note, however, that if you currently have any version of the iOS 7 Beta running on your device, you can’t upgrade to a GM seed. The update must be performed through the Apple’s Developer Center and iTunes.

Whether there’s anything new in the iOS 7 GM is still a question. Anyway, I’ll keep you updated.
