Apple Releases Emergency Patches for Dangerous Vulnerability in iOS, iPadOS and MacOS

Apple Releases Emergency Patches for Dangerous Vulnerability in iOS, iPadOS and MacOS

  • by Ozhan Ozkan

Apple has recently released a series of updates known as Rapid Security Response (RSR) to address the CVE-2023-37450 zero-day vulnerability in their operating systems. This vulnerability affected iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices, enabling attackers to bypass software protections. Apple is aware that this vulnerability has been actively exploited by attackers.

The updates also address defects found in the WebKit browser engine. These defects could allow attackers to run arbitrary code on devices by luring users to specific websites, potentially compromising their privacy and security.

Rapid Threat Responses is a relatively new initiative that provides emergency security updates for operating systems when immediate action is required. Apple has emphasized that only the latest versions of their software platforms, starting with iOS 16.4.1, iPadOS 16.4.1, and macOS 13.3.1, will receive these updates.

To ensure you receive the updates on your iPhone or iPad, navigate to "Settings → General → Software Update → Automatic Update" and enable "Threat Responses and System Files." For Mac users, go to "System Preferences → General → Software Update." Next to the "Auto-update" option, click "Show Details" and make sure the "Install responses to threats and system files" feature is enabled.
