Odds and Ends: iPhone Phishing and Gmail Encryption

Security researcher Aviv Raff has uncovered URL spoofing vulnerability in the iPhone's mail and Safari applications that could be used for phishing attacks against iPhone users.

Raff is withholding technical details, pending a fix by Apple, but the issue was also reported by Finextra.

In other web security news, Google has added encryption to its Gmail program. It basically adds https to the e-mail program. Why didn't they just add https for all their e-mail? It would make Gmail too slow, according to the Google Gmail blog.
