With the release of iOS 15.4.1 e macOS Monterey 12.3.1, Apple has fixed some of the bugs in its operating systems. And it made a number of major security improvements, including the closure of two zero-day leaks on iOS and macOS devices. According to reports from Apple, it would have been two vulnerabilities that would have allowed access to all that data present outside the allocated memory. And here comes an Apple update to fix them.
Apple Update: Fixed two zero-day flaws
According to reports from Apple, two zero-day leaks would have jeopardized the security of the iPhone and Mac. The first of the two would have allowed malicious apps to execute code arbitrary with kernel privileges. The second, however, was found nei driver Intel Graphics, affecting macOS devices only. The latter, in particular, would lead to the popularization of kernel memory. Fortunately, both flaws were reported by an “anonymous researcher” and then fixed with an Apple update.
For those unfamiliar with the term, a zero-day flaw is basically one recently discovered vulnerability, the fix of which is still unknown to developers and engineers. This is why it is so important to keep devices up to date to protect them from malicious software. Beyond this important novelty, iOS 15.4.1 also solves a problem related to the consumption of the iPhone battery, effectively improving the user experience. macOS 12.3.1, on the other hand, fixes an issue that could cause Bluetooth devices to unexpectedly disconnect from the Mac. Both are available right now. We don’t have to add anything else.
