Apple issues fix for security flaw
SAN FRANCISCO — Apple has issued fixes for a security flaw in its Macintosh computers that allows hackers to intercept data such as email, patching a major and embarrassing glitch that came to light several days ago.
The flaw allowed attackers with access to a mobile user’s network, such as a shared unsecured wireless service offered by a cafe, to see or alter exchanges between the user and protected sites such as Google’s Gmail or Facebook.
On Tuesday, Apple said in a statement that the Mac security update also improved features such as its FaceTime videoconferencing service and email.
DETROIT — Luxury brands scored highest in Consumer Reports’ annual car brand report card, released Tuesday, while problems with infotainment systems continue to plague some brands, including Ford and Cadillac.
“A lot can go wrong when building cars packed with luxury features,” said Jake Fisher, director of Consumer Reports automotive testing. “It’s impressive to have three luxury brands score top marks when reliability is one of the defining factors.”
Japanese automakers took seven of the top eight spots, while Ford and Jeep tied for the lowest score at 50. Most domestic brands were in the middle of the pack. Dodge and Chevrolet were also in the bottom five.
