Apple delivers belated zero-day patch for iOS v12 (CVE-2022-42856)
A bug in the iOS operating system may have been exploited to launch attacks on older iPhones and iPads.
Wider availability of new security featuresAdvanced Data Protection for iCloud and Security Keys for Apple ID, two security features announced and partially rolled out for testing by Apple late last year, have also been included in this latest macOS Ventura update. As per usual, the security update for the most recent macOS version (v13, or Ventura) is more hefty that those for Monterey (v12) and Big Sur (v11), but many of the fixes overlap. Apple has released security updates for macOS, iOS, iPadOS and watchOS, patching – among other things – a type confusion flaw in the WebKit component (CVE-2022-42856) that could be exploited for remote code execution on older iPhones and iPads running iOS v12.
