IOS 7 Bug: Email attachments at risk but Apple promises a patch soon

Discovered a new one bug in iOS 7 that would reside in the failure to encrypt the Mail attachments on all Apple devices. The serious flaw was discovered by Andreas Kurtz, a well-known security expert, who following a restoration of a iPhone 4 managed to have clear access to files attached to email messages.

So the problem would be present on all devices that have installed the latest version of the iOS 7 operating system, even Apple itself claims to be aware of the bug and that it is already working to offer protection within short periods.

"We are aware of the bug and are working on a patch that will be released with an upcoming OS update"

To declare it a spokesman for Cupertino who confirms the presence of the bug in the encryption system of email attachments but that however would not involve the text of the emails and would not even affect the security of other applications.

It should be emphasized that the bug cannot be exploited through remote access to the devices and therefore a possible attacker must necessarily have the physical availability of the iOS-based hardware, in order to have access to the data in the Mail application.
