Apple has delivered iPadOS 15.4.1 and iOS as well as macOS 12.3.1 to mark two weaknesses that emerge to have been overlooked by the attacker actively.
The company claims “an out-of-bounds write issue was communicated with upgraded bounds analyzing.” Without that patch, “an application might be able for implementing arbitrary code with kernel advantages,” and Apple is “familiar with a report that this issue may have been oppressed actively.”
Apple declares the vulnerability, which it has found as CVE-2022-22675, was unveiled by an unspecified security researcher. This is claimed to make an impact on every iPhone liberated since the year 2015 and the iPod touch of the seventh generation as well as the latest models of iPad mini, iPad, iPad Pro, and iPad Air.
The defect is detected in a kind of iPadOS and iOS known as AppleAVD. The company does not seem to suggest any attestation for AppleAVD, however, following the Malware News, this is a “decoder that maintains many media files” that has experienced from same vulnerabilities and complexities in the previous year.

Apple also revealed macOS 12.3.1 for addressing CVE-2022-22675 and the other complexity found as CVE-2022-22674. That imperfection was also described by the researcher the name of it is not mentioned, Apple claims, and by taking advantage of it “an application might be able for reading kernel memory.”
“An out-of-bounds read issue may head towards the disclosure of kernel memory and was communicated with upgraded input attestation,” the company has claimed. “Apple has information of a report that this problem may have been actively abused.”
Apple claims that the CVE-2022-22674 is available in an Intel graphics driver. Seemingly that means Macs presenting its custom silicon—which at this point incorporates pretty much everything but the Mac Pro—is not inclined to this defect. But the company has not claimed which of the models are stirred.
