critical Nessus Plugin ID 163395


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

- A memory corruption issue was addressed with improved state management. This issue is fixed in macOS Monterey 12.4, watchOS 8.6, tvOS 15.5, macOS Big Sur 11.6.6. An application may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. (CVE-2022-26768)

- An out-of-bounds write issue was addressed with improved bounds checking. (CVE-2022-32787)

- A buffer overflow was addressed with improved bounds checking. (CVE-2022-32788)

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