Apple Patches 61 Ways of Pwning an Apple TV

Apple TV version 7.2.1 was launched on February 25 and fixes 61 vulnerabilities in 23 different Apple TV components, such as the Kernel component, bootp, CloudKit, Code Signing, WekKit, DiskImages, ImageIO, IOKit, Office Viewer, the Location Framework, and many more.

Twenty-four of the fixed issues were found in the WebKit engine, a component utilized by the TV's built-in browser to navigate the Internet.

Based on their CVE identifiers, most of these issues were discovered and fixed last year. Most of them are also part of Apple's previous security bulletins, being already delivered to other products like OS X Yosemite, Safari, and El Capitan.
