critical Nessus Plugin ID 161384


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


The version of Apple iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 15.5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including the following:

- valid.c in libxml2 before 2.9.13 has a use-after-free of ID and IDREF attributes. (CVE-2022-23308)

- A vulnerability in WebKit may lead to code execution when processing malicious web content due to a memory corruption issue. (CVE-2022-26700)

- A vulnerability in AppleGraphicsControl that may lead to code execution when processing malicious images due to a memory corruption issue. (CVE-2022-26751:)

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