Apple bumps iOS to 6.0.1, fixes an interesting set of bugs
L33tdawg:If you care about jailbreaks and unlocking, then obviously - DON'T UPGRADE
If you have an Apple device that is capable of running iOS 6, you might have resisted upgrading it after hearing people complain about Apple's new mapping application.
But you ought to have grabbed it with both hands for security reasons: iOS 6 patched a whopping 197 CVE-numbered vulnerabilities in 41 system components, broken down as follows:
- 6 security bypasses
- 1 denial of service (DoS) problem
- 1 privilege escalations
- 15 data leakage issues
- 11 remote code execution (RCE) holes
- 7 spoofing flaws
