Apple releases security update for iOS 16.0.3

Apple has released a security update for Apple iOS 16.0.3 with a fix for a Mail vulnerability.

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to take control of an unpatched device.

The Apple iOS 16.0.3 update fixes just one Mail vulnerability (CVE-2022-22658) that could result in denial-of-service via the processing of a maliciously crafted email message. The issue affects iPhone 8 and later models.

Apple fixed the issue by addressing improved input validation. No known public exploits in the wild were reported by Apple at the time of the advisory published on October 10, 2022.

The new security update comes after Apple released last month a new version of iOS 16 that included new features that enhance iPhone “with all‑new personalization features, deeper intelligence, and seamless ways to communicate and share.”

Apple also released an update for watchOS 9.0.2 for Apple Watch Series 4 and later, but no CVEs were published.
