Apple Issues Urgent Security Update for Older iOS and iPadOS Models


Earlier this week, Apple provided updates for older versions of their iPhones and iPads to address a security vulnerability that was being actively exploited.

The problem identified as CVE-2023-23529 pertains to a glitch in the WebKit browser engine that may cause arbitrary code execution due to type confusion.

The tech company initially tackled the issue with better precautions when they issued updates on February 13, 2023. Someone who chose to remain anonymous is credited for discovering and reporting the glitch.

Apple has stated in a recent announcement that running web content which has been intentionally designed to cause harm may result in the unintended execution of arbitrary code. Furthermore, they have acknowledged reports suggesting that such an issue has already been utilized for malicious purposes.

At present, there is insufficient information about the precise method of exploitation. However, it is common practice to withhold specific technological details in order to prevent further abuse of vulnerable devices.

You can get the new version of the software for your Apple devices, specifically iOS 15.7.4 for iPhones, iPadOS 15.7.4 for iPads, including iPhone models 6s and 7, first-generation iPhone SE, iPad Air 2, fourth-generation iPad mini, and seventh-generation iPod touch.

Apple has unveiled several updates including iOS 16.4, iPadOS 16.4, macOS Ventura 13.3, macOS Monterey 12.6.4, macOS Big Sur 11.7.5, tvOS 16.4 and watchOS 9.4 that feature a variety of bug fixes and enhancements along with this revelation being made public.
