HTTP Request Hijacking for iOS

By | November 18, 2013

Researchers from Skycure have revealed an interesting vulnerability which we tried out in our labs. This vulnerability has the potential to hijack a number of apps on the iOS platform. The attack is a variant of Man in the middle attack. If an app is used on an insecure Wi-Fi network, an attacker can intercept requests sent by the app, reply to the requests with a 301, and trick the app into being redirected to a hostile server.
