The flaw could allow an attacker to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks on common encrypted networks, including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) connections.

Apple was the first company which fixes this bug in its products. The other major companies like Google and Microsoft are still working on the security patches to fix this bug. Their products are still not secure as we speak.

Apple Inc. said in an advisory note the flaw affects iPhone 4s handsets and later, iPod touch (5th generation) and later, and iPad 2 and later. Users who think they are affected by the bug can run a client checking tool, and should upgrade to iOS 8.2 sooner rather than later.
