Only a week after launching a major update for the operating system, Apple has released patches for iOS, iPados, MacOS and Watchos. The company said in supporting documents that renewal resolved webkit shortages that might have been exploited. The problem is concerned “Web content made evil [which] can lead to the execution of the Arbitrary code.”
Among the problems is the problem of memory corruption and an integer overflow on Maco and iOS, and buffer overflow and use it after a free problem on a longer iOS device. To complete deficiencies, Apple has released iOS 14.5.1, iPados 14.5.1, MacOS Big Sur 11.3.1 and Watchos 7.4.1. The owner of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch device that does not support the iOS version has recently been able to download and install iOS 12.5.3 instead.
Given that Apple believes the weakness can be “exploited actively,” it’s a good idea to install updates as soon as possible.
