Another Emergency Priority iOS Update?

re: security

Ummm.... is it just me or are the emergency zero-day exploits coming faster than ever? Like every week or so.

Is it that hard for a company worth a trillion dollars to do security audits? Maybe by hiring fewer Emoji developers and getting some crack security people on the job?

It seems like Apple is getting more and more incompetent, while implementing more and more security features, whose only value is making it harder and harder.

And the security bugs now are not just just iOS, but macOS at the same time, due to more and more code sharing between the two (macOS Ventura is a textbook example of shitty iOS design replacing sensible design on macOS). Seems like a recipe for compromising every last Apple device you have, more or less instantly.

Between that and USB malware just by plugging in for charging, it’s a dangerous world out there with digital devices. I sure like paper more and more.

About the security content of iOS 16.4.1 and iPadOS 16.4.1

...

Impact: Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution. Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited.

MPG: eg your life savings just got transmitted to some hacker in Belarus because all your logins and passwords were compromised.

What kind of liability does Apple have for system compromise? With the world gone digital, security should be #1, #2, #3 priorities. But clearly it’s an afterthought at Apple. Because fixing maximally-dangerous bugs when other companies keep having to find them instead of Apple... just a pathetic state of affairs.

Where is the team of 20 crack programmers doing in-depth security audits? Or better yet and least in addtion, the automated AI tools that analyze code for security issues?

Security bugs don’t just happen by chance, code can be analyzed by automated tools, very sophisticated ones. It’s incredible that so many bugs are happening so often when a company like Apple could throw a few hundred $million at it with AI and unf*ck the whole situation.
