The Latest iOS Update (12.2) Patches Some Serious Security Vulnerabilities

 

On Monday, Apple released iOS 12.2 to patch a total of 51 security vulnerabilities in its mobile operating system that affects iPhone 5s and later, iPad Air and then, and iPod touch 6th generation.

 

Most of the vulnerabilities Apple patched this month reside in its web rendering engine WebKit, which is used by many apps and web browsers running on Apple’s operating system.

 

According to the advisory, just opening a maliciously crafted web content using any vulnerable WebKit-based application could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code, disclosing sensitive user information, bypassing sandbox restrictions, or launch a universal cross-site scripting attack on an unpatched device.

 

To check for the update on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, go to Settings→ General → Software Update and click the ‘Download and Install’ button. In all ways, before you update your device, make sure you have a backup in place.
