    Windows Phone vulnerable to FREAK ATTACK!

    If you were explicitly made aware of every security vulnerability computer devices had, most average users wouldn't understand what it meant and freak out completely.

    Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about this. Banking on your mobile would be fine on your home WiFi unless you have reason to believe your home network is compromised.

  3. Windows Phone vulnerable to FREAK ATTACK!

    I am puzzled.

    When I visit
    security bulletin
    does not mention anything about it! What is worse, there is no hope for any update coming.

    Did I miss something? Or are the Windows Phones not meant to be secure?

    Can somebody explain please?

    With thanks in advance for any clues.
