iOS 13 Bug(s) May Show Sensitive Data

The Inquirer has reported on a particularly worrisome bug for Apple’s iOS 13. Seems to be a trend for the latest iOS as well since they also mention how US Department of Defense had issued a warning regarding the last one. The last involved allowing some access to the address book via the lock screen, while locked.

The newest discovered bug involves people’s credit card data but don’t worry if you’re using Apple Card. A number of users have reported via reddit an issue with entering their credit card info into the phone. When using the take a picture feature to add a credit card to Itunes some users are receiving an unexpected bonus. They get an image on their phones from someone else’s credit card info. Things such as names, last 4 digits, and full billing address. One user reported having spoken to Apple and they are aware of the problem and working towards a solution. Users may want to reconsider updating to iOS 13 for while longer.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
