Apple 0 Day Security Patch

3/31/2022

Apple has released security updates to address two zero-day vulnerabilities exploited by attackers to hack iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

Zero-day security bugs are flaws the software vendor is unaware of and hasn’t patched. In some cases, they also have publicly available proof-of-concept exploits or may be actively exploited in the wild.

The bugs were reported by anonymous researchers and fixed by Apple in iOS 15.4.1, iPad 15.4.1, and macOS Monterey 12.3.1 with improved input validation and bounds checking, respectively.

We strongly recommend that you install security updates as soon as possible to block potential attack attempts.

Below are the steps to update iOS on iPhone

 

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Software Update.
  4. Tap Download and Install or Install Now.
  5. Enter your passcode if prompted.
  6. The update will begin once it has been verified.
  7. The update is complete after your iPhone restarts

If you are already running Apple in iOS 15.4.1, iPad 15.4.1, and macOS Monterey 12.3.1  then you are up to date.
