Researchers say Apple’s AirDrop has a security issue

Apple users can, of course, share files with each other using AirDrop. But studies by TU Darmstadt researchers at the Department of Computer Science show that uninvited people can also tap into data. 

The research team has purportedly developed a solution that could replace the flawed AirDrop. The team says the users of more than 1.5 billion Apple devices are still vulnerable. TU Darmstadt, is a research university in the city of Darmstadt, Germany.
