Apple Updates (almost) Everything: Patch Overview, (Tue, Jan 24th)

This post was originally published on this site

Apple yesterday released its usually set of updates across its entire portfolio of operating systems. Some issues of note:

  • The update includes a patch for CVE-2022-42856 for iOS 12.5. This will help users of older Apple devices going back to the iPhone 5s. More recent operating systems received this patch in December.
  • tvOS is missing. I expect a tvOS update soon to address some of the vulnerabilities.
  • I do not see updates for git. Git last week patched some vulnerabilities; likely too late to be included in this update.
