Apple has revised the security advisories it released last month to include three new vulnerabilities impacting iOS, iPadOS, and macOS.

The first flaw is a race condition in the Crash Reporter component (CVE-2023-23520) that could enable a malicious actor to read arbitrary files as root. The iPhone maker said it addressed the issue with additional validation.

The two other vulnerabilities, credited to Trellix researcher Austin Emmitt, reside in the Foundation framework (CVE-2023-23530 and CVE-2023-23531) and could be weaponized to achieve code execution.

“An app may be able to execute arbitrary code out of its sandbox or with certain elevated privileges,” Apple said, adding it patched the issues with “improved memory handling.”

The medium to high-severity vulnerabilities have been patched in iOS 16.3, iPadOS 16.3, and macOS Ventura 13.2 that were shipped on January 23, 2023.
