Synopsis :

The version of iOS running on the mobile device is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 10.1. It
is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the FaceTime component when handling
relayed calls due to inconsistencies in the user
interface. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this
issue to cause a relayed call to continue to transmit
audio while the call appears to be terminated.
(CVE-2016-4635)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in the FontParser
component when handling specially crafted font files
that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-4660)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Sandbox Profiles
component that allows a local attacker, via a specially
crafted application, to disclose the metadata of photo
directories. (CVE-2016-4664)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Sandbox Profiles
component that allows a local attacker, via a specially
crafted application, to disclose the metadata of audio
recordings. (CVE-2016-4665)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in Webkit due
to improper validation of user-supplied input. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these to
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4666, CVE-2016-4677)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the System Boot
component, within MIG generated code, due to improper
validation of input. A local attacker can exploit these
to terminate the system or execute arbitrary code with
elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-4669)

- A flaw exists in the Security component due to the
program logging the length of passwords. A local
attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive
information. (CVE-2016-4670)

- A memory corruption issue exists in the CoreGraphics
component when handling specially crafted JPEG files. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
specially crafted file, to cause a denial of service
condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-4673)

- An unspecified logic issue exists in libxpc that allows
a local attacker to execute arbitrary code with root
privileges. (CVE-2016-4675)

- A flaw exists in libarchive due to improper path
validation when creating temporary files during archive
extraction. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, via a symlink attack, to overwrite
arbitrary files. (CVE-2016-4679)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Kernel component due
to improper sanitization of input. A local attacker can
exploit this to disclose kernel memory contents.
(CVE-2016-4680)

- A flaw exists in the Contacts component due to a failure
to revoke an application's access to the Address Book
after its access has been removed in Settings. A local
attacker can exploit this to cause access to persist
after it should have been removed. (CVE-2016-4686)

- A flaw exists in the CFNetworks component when handling
proxy credentials that allows a man-in-the-middle
attacker to disclose sensitive user information.
(CVE-2016-7579)
