iPhone / iPod touch v1.1.3

  • Foundation

    CVE-ID: CVE-2008-0035

    Available for: iPhone v1.0 through v1.1.2, iPod touch v1.1 through 1.1.2

    Impact: Accessing a maliciously crafted URL may lead to an application termination or arbitrary code execution

    Description: A memory corruption issue exists in Safari's handling of URLs. By enticing a user to access a maliciously crafted URL, an attacker may cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of URLs.

  • Passcode Lock

    CVE-ID: CVE-2008-0034

    Available for: iPhone v1.0 through v1.1.2

    Impact: An unauthorized user may bypass the Passcode Lock and launch iPhone applications

    Description: The Passcode Lock feature is designed to prevent applications from being launched unless the correct passcode is entered. An implementation issue in the handling of emergency calls allows users with physical access to an iPhone to launch an application without the passcode. This update addresses the issue through an improved check on the state of the Passcode Lock.

    Available for: iPhone v1.0 through v1.1.2, iPod touch v1.1 through 1.1.2

    Impact: Visiting a malicious website may result in the disclosure of sensitive information

    Description: WebKit allows a page to navigate the subframes of any other page. Visiting a maliciously crafted web page could trigger a cross-site scripting attack, which may lead to the disclosure of sensitive information. This update addresses the issue by implementing a stricter frame navigation policy.

This update is only available through iTunes, and will not appear in your computer's Software Update application, or in the Apple Downloads site. Make sure you have an internet connection and have installed the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes

iTunes will automatically check Apple's update server on its weekly schedule. When an update is detected, it will download it.

The automatic update process may take up to a week depending on the day that iTunes checks for updates. You may manually obtain the update via the "Check for Update" button within iTunes. After doing this, the update can be applied when your iPhone or iPod touch is docked to your computer.
