Weekly Goat Report - Platform Wars (11/14/14)

Apple lost more of the mobile device pie this week among pMD's charge capture users, losing .08 percent to Android. This drop overlaps with a U.S. government alert issued on Thursday. The alert warns iPhone and iPad users of potential hackers using a new technique known as the "Masque Attack." It is unclear who comes up with the names for these security breaches. The hack uses fraudulent apps to exploit a vulnerability in Apple's operating system that would enable them to steal users' sensitive data. The security hack can be avoided by installing apps only from Apple's App Store or from their own organizations.
