Security researchers found a critical flaw in the iPhone Email app. It is possible to infect and compromise an iPhone only by sending an email. This exploitation can be carried out even without opening the email sent by the attacker. Exploitations are wild and reported worldwide.
Attackers have used Out of Boundry (OOB) Write and Heap Overflow vulnerabilities in a MIME library MFMutable of email app to carry out the remote code execution exploitation. A kernel bug was possibly used afterward for full control over the targeted device.
