Oh hey, look, another iOS bug! This time hackers have found a new way to crack your password, and it’s surprisingly easy too.

A bug in Apple’s Mail app has been found in which hackers are able to manipulate Apple’s code to create a pop-up asking for you login credentials. The pop-up, which appears to look authentic, is in fact fake.
