Apple iOS 10 and 10.0.1 Released

On top of today being Patch Tuesday, Apple has released IOS 10 sometime today as well.  They also released 10.0.1, with not a lot of detail behind that release (maybe something was missed?)

Security details for 10.0 :
Security details for 10.0.1: (an almost empty page)

Highlights are:

MiTM attacks on Apple Updates
Autocorrect pulling sensitive data from cache (again)
Issues with Certificate Trust in Mail app allows MiTM
Airprint Temp file sanitization
SMS directory exposed to malicious apps


None of these Apple or Microsoft updates are what you'd call "small" - let's hope we don't break the internet today (just kidding, I think).

Happy Patching everyone!
