"Security researchers have found a vulnerability in latest version of iOS 7 which could allow attackers to record users' touch / tap events on non-jailbroken iDevices, including iPhone 5S. Researchers have created a proof-of-concept app that successfully bypassed Apple's app review process. Researchers over at FireEye have claimed that the vulnerability is present in iOS 6.1.x, iOS 7.0.4, iOS 7.0.5 and even in iOS 7.0.6, which was released just a few days before."
