Home Banking Mobile Apps: unsecure at any speed

Security researchers at IO Active have tested 40 iOS-based banking apps from 60 banks around the world and the results are not reassuring. All apps could be installed on a jailbroken iOS device, 90 percent used also some non SSL links, roughly half of them lacked some security feature or left sensitive information non protected and easily readable.

We have a long way to go before mobile platforms will become safe to use for any use.
