*

Networking

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4227

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: The encryption level for PPTP VPN connections may be lower than expected

*

Office Viewer

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4211

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Viewing a maliciously crafted Microsoft Excel file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

Description: A signedness issue in Office Viewer's handling of columns in Microsoft Excel files may result in an out-of-bounds memory access. Viewing a maliciously crafted Microsoft Excel file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.

*

Passcode Lock

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4228

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Emergency calls are not restricted to emergency numbers

Description: iPhone provides the ability to make an emergency call when locked. Currently, an emergency call may be placed to any number. A person with physical access to an iPhone may take advantage of this feature to place arbitrary calls which are charged to the iPhone owner. This update addresses the issue by restricting emergency calls to a limited set of phone numbers.

*

Passcode Lock

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4229

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Restoring a device from backup may not re-enable the Passcode Lock

Description: The Passcode Lock feature is designed to prevent applications from being launched unless the correct passcode is entered. A race condition in the handling of device settings may cause the Passcode Lock to be removed when the device is restored from backup. This may allow a person with physical access to the device to launch applications without the passcode. This update addresses the issue by improving the system's ability to recognize missing preferences. This issue does not affect systems prior to iPhone OS 2.0 or iPhone OS for iPod touch 2.0. Credit to Nolen Scaife for reporting this issue.

*

Passcode Lock

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4230

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Short Message Service (SMS) messages may be revealed before the passcode is entered

Description: If an SMS message arrives while the emergency call screen is visible, the entire SMS message is displayed, even if the "Show SMS Preview" preference was set to "OFF". This update addresses the issue by, in this situation, displaying only a notification that a SMS message has arrived, and not its content.

*

Safari

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4231

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

Description: A memory corruption issue exists in the handling of HTML table elements. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue through improved handling of HTML table elements. Credit to Haifei Li of Fortinet's FortiGuard Global Security Research Team for reporting this issue.

*

Safari

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4232

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Websites with embedded iframe elements may be vulnerable to user interface spoofing

Description: Safari allows an iframe element to display content outside its boundaries, which may lead to user interface spoofing. This update addresses the issue by not allowing iframe elements to display content outside their boundaries. This issue does not affect systems prior to iPhone OS 2.0 or iPhone OS for iPod touch 2.0. Credit to John Resig of Mozilla Corporation for reporting this issue.

*

Safari
CVE-ID: CVE-2008-4233

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may initiate a phone call without user interaction

Description: If an application is launched via Safari while a call approval dialog is shown, the call will be placed. This may allow a maliciously crafted website to initiate a phone call without user interaction. Additionally, under certain circumstances it may be possible for a maliciously crafted website to block the user's ability to cancel dialing for a short period of time. This update addresses the issue by properly dismissing Safari's call approval dialog when an application is being launched via Safari. Credit to Collin Mulliner of Fraunhofer SIT for reporting this issue.

*

Webkit

CVE-ID: CVE-2008-3644

Available for: iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.1, iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.1

Impact: Sensitive information may be disclosed to a person with physical access to an unlocked device

Description: Disabling autocomplete on a form field may not prevent the data in the field from being stored in the browser page cache. This may lead to the disclosure of sensitive information to a person with physical access to an unlocked device. This update addresses the issue by properly clearing the form data. Credit to an anonymous researcher for reporting this issue.

Some of the lesser features added to 2.2 screen shots.

-Streaming or downloading TiPb podcast - Priceless

-Having the app store organized much better - Nice touch

-More pics added to each individual app - could go along with the above comment but oh well. Still a nice feature.

Quick question - if I want to update and I jailbroke 2.1, can I just run the new installer and that will be ok? Or do I need to restore to a clean device and then install and re-add all my apps and settings and such?

You can update with no issues but you will not be able to jailbreak 2.2 with the current pwnage tool. You will have to wait until the new release.

Something else people should be aware of that I posted in Jailbreak Central but I'll comment on it here... all of you with hardware SIM unlocks are dead in the water with the 2.2 firmware. Apple has solved that and if you update your sim unlock will not work. Just a bit of a warning before you update.

So I take it you decided to update and wait to re-jailbreak?
