Apple Patches 24 Vulnerabilities Across Product LinesApple Patches 24 Vulnerabilities Across Product Lines
The vulnerabilities include three for which exploits have already been seen in the wild.
November 7, 2020
Apple has released updates addressing 24 separate vulnerabilities in iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2. The releases were part of a group of seven updates released on Nov. 5 covering products across all Apple hardware families.
Within the batch of vulnerabilities patched in these releases are three zero-day vulnerabilities — those for which an exploit was found in the wild before a patch was available. All three of these zero-days — CVE-2020-27930, CVE-2020-27950, and CVE-2020-27932 — exist in iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, macOS Catalina, and watchOS 5.3.9. Two of the vulnerabilities would allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system; the third would allow a malicious application to disclose the contents of kernel memory.
Apple recommends that all users update their systems as soon as possible.
