IPhone passwords 'shockingly easy' to steal from iOS users

Proof-of-concept demonstrates how easy it is to fool Apple users with a simple popup
Apple has released the third update to iOS since it's release less than a month ago, and this one contains some very specific, and rather odd, bug fixes.
Apple iOS users are being warned to be aware of malicious popups after a mobile app developer published a proof-of-concept phishing attack that mimics a login prompt using a website popup.
Additionally, it fixes an issue plaguing iPhone 6s serviced with non-genuine Apple parts that resulted in unresponsive touch input, according to Apple's release notes. This update: ● Fixes an issue where audio and haptic feedback would not work on some iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices. Apple said 11.0.3 addresses a haptic feedback problem with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, as well as issues with the iPhone 6s touchscreen. As you can see in the screenshot above, this comes in the form of a password request that looks pretty much identical to the one that Apple uses themselves.
"Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly", Apple said in the update.
You can get the iOS 11.0.3 update, which is roughly 280 MB, in Settings General Software Update or via iTunes.
Most of us blindingly complete these popups without batting an eyelid, but this should serve as a wake up call to anyone with an iOS device. As such, beyond the bug fixes, there aren't any remarkable, user-facing changes to the iOS 11 experience in these last few updates.
The update is now available as a free, over-the-air update for all eligible iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. As Krause says, "Just ask your users politely, they'll probably just hand over their credentials, as they're trained to do so".
Half of the universe's missing matter has been found
But finally, two separate teams of researchers have discovered the presence of hypothesized matter floating between the galaxies. This phenomenon allowed the researchers to see strands of matter that are normally far too dim to observe.
