An exploit that allowed an iPhone to run applications without signing into a computer is back on the scene, thanks to a report by Recode.
The news comes as Apple pushes out new software updates that fix many security flaws found by the exploit, as well as a fix for the “Sorcerers Apprentice” bug that allowed the iPhone to launch applications without a signed-in user.
Apple has been working to release an update for the exploit since early February, with the company now saying that it is on track to do so within the next two weeks.
In a blog post, the company announced a fix that fixes the “sorcerer” bug.
“The bug was exploited in an iOS device running iOS 8.3,” Apple said.
“We believe that this exploit is still being exploited and we recommend that users upgrade their devices to iOS 8.”
The update is also available on the Mac App Store and the Google Play Store, the latter of which is still offering the “Curse of the Sorcerer” exploit.
Apple said that the fix is available for both iOS 8 and iOS 9, though it didn’t elaborate.
“On iOS 9 and above, this issue can be fixed by using the latest version of the latest security updates, available on iOS 9.0 and above,” Apple wrote.
“This includes the latest Safari browser update.” iOS 9 is Apple’s latest operating system and is expected to be released this fall.
In March, a flaw that allowed people to access the Safari web browser without signing in to their iCloud accounts was discovered.
The exploit allowed attackers to bypass the sandbox that Apple uses to prevent malicious web sites from being able to run on the browser.
As part of the exploit mitigation, the Safari browser also added the ability to hide certain web pages from browser users.
The Safari exploit also allowed an attacker to bypass Apple’s “secure browsing” feature, which prevents users from being tracked by sites that have been blocked.
The “Sorcery” exploit is not the only exploit that was recently discovered.
Apple also discovered an issue that allowed attackers with a jailbroken iPhone to bypass Safari’s “safe browsing” and “sandbox” protections and install malicious apps.
Apple’s updated security measures for iOS 9 also include a “crack-proof” option that prevents an attacker from getting into a locked device, as it is able to prevent users from accessing apps without a sign-in.
Apple released iOS 9 on March 18.
