By now, everyone has heard about the major security flaw in both iOs and OS X. (As always, ArsTechnica has a very good explanation.) We updated our iPads yesterday. I’m the only one running OS X 10.9.1 (mavericks) and am now paying the price for being an early adopter. (As of yesterday, there was no work about whether the problem exists in earlier versions of OS X.) There is a touch of irony in Apple’s security flaw.
I belong to the IEEE. As such I receive their monthly magazine, Computer. The February, 2014 cover is shown to the left. Timely, huh? Software testing indeed.
My lovely wife pointed out that Apple fired their director of software development last month. Perhaps this is one reason why.
