Apple released an official iOS update (8.4.1) to users last week and we highly recommend everyone to install this latest iOS version due to the sheer number of security updates that it contains.
The main security updates in this iOS version include patching of the following vulnerabilities:
- A vulnerability that enabled an attacker with a privileged network position to accept untrusted certificates from the lock screen
- A vulnerability that led to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution when viewing a maliciously crafted movie file
- A vulnerability that enabled an attacker to access the iCloud user record of a previously signed in user
- Many different vulnerabilities around the jailbreaking of iOS
