On Apple’s recent SSL/TLS bug

On Apple’s recent SSL/TLS bug

A few days ago, Apple issued a security update for iOS, bringing the OS up to level 7.0.6. That update cryptically stated that there was a bug in the way iOS was handling SSL/TLS but, in true Apple fashion, remained too vague to be fully understood. Since then, I’ve had the misfortune of reading quite a lot of fear, misinformation and distrust (FUD) being spread about the net. Apple, of course, could have just documented everything and prevented this sort of thing from happening but, well, whatever. In any case, I’ll take a shot at explaining what went wrong in previous iOS versions and what they fixed, such as I can gather with my own efforts.
