Home Button on iPhone, iPad Poses Data Leakage Risk

Link

When the Home button on the Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone and iPad creates a screenshot of the current view and stores it as an image on the device, it can pose a risk that data in the screenshot could be leaked. “The main thing about mobile apps is that confidential data may end up on mobile devices, which can be lost, stolen, jailbroken, or infected. So the focus of mobile app security should be protecting the data,” Hakhinian, a security architect with IntraLinks and provider of enterprise content management and collaboration products, told FierceMobileIT in an interview.
