It was only three weeks ago that #apple patched its core line of products and pushed its latest version of #os x, El Capitan. Yet another wave of patches arrived Thursday however to address scores of vulnerabilities in OS X, #ios, Safari, iTunes, and even the company’s smart watch operating system, watchOS.
With the iOS update, iOS 9.1, Apple effectively kills two vulnerabilities that a group of Chinese hackers, Pangu Team, were using to #jailbreak the operating system. The collective had been leveraging a heap based buffer overflow and a memory corruption issue to elevate privileges and execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges as part of its jailbreak tool.
