Patch Now: Apple’s iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Safari Under Attack with New Zero
Apple has released a new iOS update to patch a zero-day flaw that could have allowed malicious actors to take control of iPhones, iPads, and Macs. The update, iOS 16.3.1, is now available for iPhone users.
The zero-day flaw, which was discovered by Google’s Project Zero security research team, affected iPhones running iOS 12.4.1 and iPadOS 12.4.1. The flaw could have allowed an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the device’s kernel, potentially leading to a full device compromise.
With the release of iOS 16.3.1, Apple has addressed the flaw, which is now patched in all versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Safari.
