New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Apple iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 12.1.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in WebKit can lead to arbitrary code execution if a user is enticed to visit a malicious web page.
(CVE-2019-6227, CVE-2019-6233, CVE-2019-6234)

- A maliciously crafted SQL query could lead to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2018-20346, CVE-2018-20505, CVE-2018-20506)

- A malicious application could lead to arbitrary code execution with kernel privileges.
(CVE-2019-6218)

Additionally several other vulnerabilities exist, the highest of which could allow an attacker to perform a remote code execution attack by enticing a user to view malicious web content.

Solution

Upgrade to Apple iOS version 12.1.3 or later.
