Listening to them you’d be forgiven for thinking that your bank account details are going to posted on Facebook sites all over the world.

Truth is….
Yes there is a bug.
Yes it is serious and steps have already been taken to plug it.
No, there’s only a “proof of concept” out there. There is no evidence that anyone has, or even knows how, to exploit this bug.

For iOS users, download the latest version of the iOS and you’ll be fixed.
