Apple launched emergency security patches to deal with 2 new actively exploited zero-day security flaws hampering iPhones and Macs
The Image I/O and Allet frameworks contain the two Apple zero-day vulnerabilities identified as CVE-2023-41064 and CVE-2023-41061.
A buffer overflow problem was discovered by Citizen Lab researchers and is known as CVE-2023-41064. The IT behemoth fixed the issue with better memory management.
|“A maliciously created image’s processing could result in arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of information suggesting that this problem may have been deliberately exploited.”
“A maliciously crafted attachment could execute arbitrary code. Apple is aware of information suggesting that this problem may have been deliberately exploited.”
Apple identified the validation flaw, CVE-2023-41061. The IT behemoth modified its reasoning to correct the problem. By getting the device to open a specially created attachment, an attacker can execute arbitrary code.
With the releases of macOS Ventura 13.5.2, iOS 16.6.1, iPadOS 16.6.1, and watchOS 9.6.2, Apple fixed the issues.
