Apple iOS < 15.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities (HT213182)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 158972

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

- A memory corruption issue in the Accelerate Framework that can lead to unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution when opening a maliciously crafted PDF. (CVE-2022-22633)

- A buffer overflow condition in AVEVideoEncoder that allows an application to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. (CVE-2022-22634)

- An out-of-bounds write issue in AVEVideoEncoder that allows an application to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. (CVE-2022-22636)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Apple iOS version 15.4 or later
