“Apple has released security updates to address vulnerabilities in multiple products. An attacker could exploit some of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected device,” the notice, dated March 28, reads. “CISA encourages users and administrators to review the following advisories and apply the necessary updates.”

Security updates were included in the iOS 15.7.4 and iPadOS 15.7.4, iOS 16.4 and iPadOS 16.4, Safari 16.4, Studio Display Firmware Update 16.4, watchOS 9.4, tvOS 16.4, macOS Big Sur 11.7.5, macOS Monterey 12.6.4, and macOS Ventura 13.3 upgrades on Monday.

Apple Inc. on Monday confirmed it released its iOS 16.4 update to users, including a number of new security updates and features.

iOS 16.4 runs on all iPhones starting from the iPhone 8 onwards, according to Apple, which includes bug fixes and new features. Apple also released iOS 15.7.4 for iPhones that are older who have older devices Monday.

The iOS 16.4 upgrade also fixes two flaws in the iPhone operating systems, tracked as CVE-2023-27969 and CVE-2023-27933 that could allow a malicious actor to execute code without the user knowing. Meanwhile, another flaw, CVE-2023-28178, could allow an attacker to bypass the user’s Privacy preferences, says Apple via its support page.

Two vulnerabilities in WebKit, which powers the Safari browser, were also fixed in the latest update, the release notes says. Overall, more than 30 security issues were fixed in the update.

Of course, if you don't care about cyber spies and phones acting on their own, you can dismiss this post at your very own risk. :p

Ho, ho, ho and mwah, ha, ha. It appears that I will be getting a leg up on the inclusion of Krampus in the 2023 Game Jam. We arrived in Orlando, FL yesterday and my wife found a Krampus Festival for us to attend tonight! Maybe I will be going home with a Krampus!
I was planning on getting new character management feature into Character Generator, but my recent illness has delayed this somewhat. I will try and get it done today (which would be a miracle) but if not, I will have to complete the whole lot by Tuesday. This should hopefully be fine and all other feature updates should not have their target dates affected.
Everybody: "Hey, weren't you supposed to be making a game"?

I've been watching videos about the videogame streamer Open Hand charity scandal, and the rabbit hole keeps getting deeper. At first it was just a lot of donated money being grossly neglected for years, and now there's a lot of money unaccounted for, which could turn this into a legitimate IRS crackdown.
