RUSH: I’m gonna give you the short version right now because my e-mail is overflowing. “You said you were gonna explain this Apple security thing!” Here it is, in a nutshell, folks. It’s not time to panic. There’s so much media on it. In the tech media and in the standard news media, think of Apple as the Republicans. They’re despised and they’re hated.
The only difference is, Apple is number one and very successful and knows exactly what they’re doing. The Republicans don’t. There’s no comparison between Apple and Republicans in terms of achievement, accomplishment, but in terms of being hated and despised, they’re very close. What this security flaw is — and it primarily would affect you if you’re on a public Wi-Fi network, like at an airport or a Starbucks or any other kind of Internet cafe.

Maybe your corporate network, it’s the same thing. Really vulnerable… Well, I don’t want to even put it that way. Your biggest vulnerability is on a private network, and what’s happened is, there is a line of code that doesn’t exist that enables… It’s called a man-in-the-middle attack.
