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 15.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including the following:

- A vulnerability in Model I/O where processing a malicious STL file can lead to unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2022-22579)
- A memory corruption vulnerability in IOMobileFrameBuffer that allows a malicious application to execute code with kernel privileges due to improper sanitization. (CVE-2022-22587)
- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the kernel that allows a malicious application to execute code with kernel privileges due to improper memory handling. (CVE-2022-22593) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
