Security update for iCloud for Windows

A serious vulnerability in Apple's HTML rendering engine WebKit also affects the iCloud client for Windows. Apple has now released a security update of the iCloud client to fix these vulnerabilities.


Windows users who also want to access their data in the Apple cloud will need iCloud for Windows. iCloud for Windows gives you access to photos, videos, emails, calendars, calendar, files and other important information from your iCloud account directly from your Windows PC.

Due to memory error in the WebKit HTML rendering engine, Apple has released iCloud für Windows in Version 7.2. If you use iCloud for Windows (it's available for Windows 7 and upward), install the update immediately. Vulnerabilities allow malicious code to be executed when accessing manipulated web content – see this Apple document. In addition, the update closes another APN gap that an attacker on the same network can use to track a user.
