    But Apple products don't have security issues and do not require virus and firewall solutions.

    Does the update really apply to ALL devices and OS versions? Have to have a look and see who found that one.

    Still puzzles me, why some people put so much info in a phone thats easily lost/stolen. Far too many store CC PIN's in them.

    The patch is to fix a serious flaw in iThings that is being exploited by governments to spy on users. See:
