Yesterday evening, Apple released the iOS 17.1.2 and iPadOS 17.1.2 update, and it also issued updates for all its other systems. This update is a surprise to us and the reason is that we are waiting for the 17.2 update, which will bring many features, and it was expected that Apple would release it this week, so why another sub-update? ? The reason, as I expected, is security and it appears to be dangerous. There is information indicating a vulnerability in the web engine that may lead to the disclosure of sensitive information to the user.
