Apple Patches Multiple Vulnerabilities Across Platforms

Updates address two separate issues in Apple's desktop and mobile operating systems.

On the heels of the upgrade to iOS 13, Apple has released a series of security updates to iOS, macOS, iPadOS, and watchOS. There are two separate updates, each addressing a specific vulnerability on multiple platforms.

The first update, released on Thursday, addresses an out-of-bounds memory read that might allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target machine. This update affects a number of operating systems across several Apple platforms. Apple released updates designated macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update 2, Security Update 2019-005 High Sierra, and Security Update 2019-005 Sierra; watchOS 5.3.2; and iOS 12.4.2.

Today, Apple also released iOS 13.1.1 and iPadOS 13.1.1. These updates address errors in the "sandbox" that iOS and iPadOS use to limit the permissions and resources available to an app. Because of the error, third-party app extensions could run with the wrong permissions, gaining access to resources they should not have been able to reach.
