Apple has issued an urgent iPhone software update. The new update was released on Friday, April 2, after the company discovered two bugs that allowed rogue applications to “execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges.”

As a precautionary measure, Apple has made iOS 15.4.1 available for all users to download and install. According to Apple, devices should notify users when a new update is ready for download. Otherwise, on an iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > General > Software Update, and on a Mac, go to System Preferences > Software Update.

All three operating systems are vulnerable to the CVE-2022-22675 vulnerability, which allows hackers to run malicious code with full kernel privileges. That means they have full access to a target’s computer and hardware.

MacOS is vulnerable to a second vulnerability known as CVE-2022-22674, which could allow an attacker to access the operating system’s “kernel memory.” Apple has already fixed four and five zero-days this year, including one that could have been used to track sensitive user information, according to Engadget.

In addition to the zero-day vulnerability that was addressed, iOS 15.4.1 also fixes a problem that was caused by the previous update, in addition to the zero-day vulnerability that was addressed. Apparently, the release of iOS 15.4 included a bug that could lead to a faster discharge of an iPhone’s battery than normal.
