Apparently, there's an "epic" security flaw in iOS/OS X, which I've never heard about...

Researcher: Array of Apple Apps Vulnerable to “Gotofail” Attack | Re/code

If you stopped using the Safari browser while patiently awaiting Apple’s OS X patch for the “Gotofail” security vulnerability publicized over the weekend, that’s smart.

Now strongly consider giving up Apple’s Calendar, FaceTime, Keynote, iBooks and Mail apps, as well as the Twitter Mac desktop client.
I'm surprised MacNN didn't report this, save for a small article to announce an update to iOS, which doesn't sound alarming.. As usual, I'm not too worried about these...

It's a flaw, I wouldn't make it out to be an "epic" flaw, but it's not good.

Can we all agree to stop using the word "epic" for everything?

The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
