A technology products director with digital rights advocacy group the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Peter Eckersley says this is a “serious privacy and security vulnerability,” according to AppleInsider.
“It is a security issue, it is a privacy issue, and it is a trust issue,” he said. “Can you trust the UI to do what you told it to do? It's certainly a bug that needs to be fixed urgently.”
However, Mac security specialist Intego has a different take on the matter. The company’s Lisa Myers says the issue isn't all that serious yet.
