Contact book issue results in rare dressing down
The co-founder of Path, Dave Morin, was recently called over to Apple headquarters to be "grilled" by CEO Tim Cook and some other company executives, according to Bloomberg. The news agency cites "people familiar with the meeting" as sources. The ultimate outcome of the event is unmentioned in the new report.
Path recently became the center of controversy when it was revealed that its iOS app was uploading users' address books. The problem has since been fixed, but it revealed a serious flaw in many mobile apps, raising concerns up to the level of the US government. A similar photo/video vulnerability was recently discovered in iOS and Android. It is unknown if Apple delivered a promised patch to the address book issue in iOS 5.1.
