Patch Your iPhone Now for Mysterious Mail Crashing Bug

iOS 16.0.3 was pushed by Apple and is recommended to be installed.

Maybe it’s a little low, whether it’s because it promises to fix incoming calls and app notifications issues on the iPhone 14 Pro, or because the mic volume is a little low when making calls via CarPlay on the iPhone 14. It’s not because there isn’t one. The camera app is slow to launch… you guessed it… iPhone 14 Pro.

No, your iPhone’s operating system needs to be updated to iOS version 16.0.3 due to a critical security update.

apple didn’t say much As for what exactly is at issue, it appears that a security vulnerability (dubbed CVE-2022-22658) exists in the default Mail app that ships with Apple phones.

In particular:

“Handling maliciously crafted email messages may lead to a denial of service.”

This means that someone could compose a boobytrapped message, and if the mail app tried to do anything with the poisoned email, it could crash with a twist of a twist.

There is no indication from Apple that this vulnerability has been exploited by someone outside. We believe that threats should be taken seriously.
