    Apple has just released OS X Security Update 2011-002 which update Safari
    5.0.5 and iOS 4.3.2; the update ensures that security certificates
    fraudulently signed by the certificate issuer Comodo over 3 weeks ago
    cannot be used when you have an encrypted SSL session running on the
    browser.

    SSL is intended to give the user confidence that personal data exchanged
    with a website (for example typing in a Username and password) is not being
    seen and recorded by a malicious third party.

    The update can be obtained for iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) and for Mac
    OSX as well as Windows by using the inbuilt system updating tools. In the
    case of iOS this will mean connecting the device to your computer and
    running iTunes to update it directly using the USB wire - it won't work
    over a wireless or GPS connection.
