AirDrop bug compromises Apple Inc’s iOS and OS X: Security news IT leaders need to know.

LOS ANGELES – For those of you who heard Apple tout new features for the new iPhone 6S and said, “that doesn’t sound like much,” Apple wants you to think differently.“iOS 9 is also off to an amazing start, on pace to be downloaded by more users than any other software release in Apple’s history,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, in a statement.Less than a week after Apple released iOS 9, the company announced the software has hit 50 percent adoption, meaning more than half of existing iOS devices have installed iOS 9.

The maker of iPhones, iPads and Mac computers took out full-page ads over the weekend touting that “the only thing that’s changed is everything,” for the iPhone 6S, which goes on sale Friday at 8 a.m. This comes after an estimated 12 percent adoption rate in the first 24 hours after the software was launched, and means that iOS 9 now has the fastest adoption rate in Apple history. Here’s a look at security news IT leaders need to know: Users of TSA-approved luggage locks, for which the agency holds master keys, should be aware that those keys have been reproduced by unauthorized users with 3D printers after an original set was photographed and the picture printed in the Washington Post.

The device will be going on sale in the United States, as well as Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the U.K. You may have heard about the biggies: faster performance, improved camera, 4K ultra-high definition video recording and that new 3D Touch engine that previews e-mail and apps depending upon how hard you press on the screen. This makes it attractive to developers because they can create a more consistent experience compared to Android devices, which are often split evenly over several more dates versions of the mobile operating system. Apple is cleaning up its app store to remove malicious iPhone and iPad apps after hackers infected one of its authoring tools, Xcode, with malware known as XcodeGhost that then was embedded in the apps developers created. The infected software was made available on a server in China, which some developers may have used because its downloads were faster than those from Apple’s U.S. servers.

First of all, you have to have the phone plugged into power to make it work, (who used their phone that way?) and secondly, to get the feature off the ground, first you have to go settings and opt-in for the feature. Another method of using the Android lock screen to attack users has emerged that requires a factory reset, with associated loss of data, to remediate. Security firm ESET, which discovered the vulnerability, said that once the malware — known as Lockerpin — is activated, it’s delivered as a bogus Android update. It then displays an ominous-looking warning that claims to be from U.S. law enforcement that demands a US$500 “penalty” for viewing and harbouring pornography on the device.

If you’re one of those who drop your phone–and that includes all of us, you’ll be glad to know Apple says the new cover glass is the strongest it’s ever used before. Follow USA TODAY tech columnist and #talkingtech host Jefferson Graham on Twitter, where he’s @jeffersongraham and listen to his daily audio tech reports on Stitcher and TuneIn. A bug in an Apple library that allows attackers to overwrite files on Apple devices has been exploited over AirDrop, the feature in OS X and iOS that enables users to send files directly to other devices, even if the recipient declines to accept the file, according to ThreatPost.

WordPress strongly recommends that users upgrade to version 4.3.1 immediately to remedy two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a potential privilege escalation flaw in previous versions.
