Apple Store for iPhone receives a criptic update

The Apple Store app for iPhone received an update today with the following release notes:

Requires iOS 4.0 or later

Holy cryptic release notes Batman! My guess is that the update is actually in preparation for the pending release of the iPhone 5. What do you think?

[App Store link, thanks Jonathan!]

Skype admits to iPhone app security problem, releasing a fix "soon"

Skype admits to iPhone app security problem, releasing a fix "soon"

Skype has stated they are aware of a serious cross-site scripting vulnerability within the chat feature for Skype on the iPhone. The security hole could allow for malicious JavaScript code to access to your address book and is known to affect versions 3.0.1 and below.

Skype reached out to TechCrunch to say they're hard at work on getting an update pushed to the App Store.

We are working hard to fix this reported issue in our next planned release which we hope to roll out imminently. In the meantime we always recommend people exercise caution in only accepting friend requests from people they know and practice common sense internet security as always.

The funny thing is, Skype has known about the issue for a while now. AppSec Consulting security researcher Phil Purviance helped discover the problem and let Skype know about it almost a month ago. Skype responded saying they would release an update earlier this month, but we're nearing the end of September and there's no update to be found.

Here's hoping Skype gets on this quick and pushes out an update soon, but in the meantime check out the video below detailing how the vulnerability works.

Add more browsing functionality with BackForwardList for Safari [jailbreak]

Add more browsing functionality with BackForwardList for Safari [jailbreak]

If you use Safari rather frequently on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch you may want to check out BackForwardList for Safari. The main purpose is to enhance the functionality of the back and forward buttons.

Instead of tapping to go back a page, you can hold down on the back or forward button to gain quick access to your history. I've found this useful when I want to go back to a site I was browsing a few pages back. It's much easier than just tapping on the back button multiple times.

Developers use LEGO robot to take 10,000 test photos

The Developers over at Pheromone Labs are working on a photography app for a client and one of their duties is to take ten to fifteen thousand test photos with the app. This is a time-consuming and daunting to task, so the developers came up with a creative solution: a picture-taking LEGO robot!

The idea was simple: build a set of arms driven by a motor. The arms would then simulate a user taking photos with the iPad. After discussing the idea with our resident rock star and creative genius Mathieu Savage, we located a Lego Mindstorm set belonging to our champion story teller and master of analytics Tom Boutet.

MyWi updated with support for iOS 5 [jailbreak]

MyWi updated with support for iOS 5 [jailbreak]

Popular tethering app MyWi recently received an update that adds compatibility for iOS 5. f you don't currently own MyWi you can install a trial via Cydia. You'll have 3 days to test it out in demo mode. After that you can purchase MyWi for a one time purchase of $19.99 when the trial expires.

It's worth noting that carriers typically frown upon the use of unauthorized tethering apps. Some have even taken matters into their own hands. So if you're an extremely heavy data user, you'd probably be better off just adding a tethering plan through your carrier.
