Issue

The Trend Micro Mobile Security iOS application (version 3.1.1034 and
below) does not validate the SSL certificate it receives when connecting
to the mobile application login server.

Impact

An attacker who can perform a man in the middle attack may present a
bogus SSL certificate which the application will accept silently.
Usernames, passwords and sensitive information could be captured by an
attacker without the user's knowledge.
