Fix SSL Issue: No Update to iOS 7.0.6 / 6.1.6 Needed

Users who experienced SSL bug on their iDevices can fix this problem without having to update to iOS 7.0.6 or 6.1.6 on older models that are not supported by firmware v. 7. The latest operating system released by Apple can be jailbroken with Evasi0n7 updated version but not all users are eager to install the new iOS 6.1.6 and 7.0.6, re-jailbreak again and install all the tweaks back.

Here is a way how you can solve the big bug with SSL thanks to hackers. The problem is better to be solved since it potentially allows bad guys to get and even change your information secured during HTTPS sessions because of the errors in SSL / TLS library.

According to reports, the problem is caused by one silly error. The server can’t reach one portion of iOS code. Some rumors even mention that it can be a way how Apple gave the NSA an opportunity to get into information transformed during secure network connections. These are just rumors, remember this.

If you are jailbroken, go to Cydia and look for one good tweak from Ryan Petrich that solves the bug in SSL security system for iOS 7.0.5 and previous versions of Apple mobile firmware.

How to Solve SSL Bug without Installing iOS 7.0.6 and 6.1.6
