Less than a week after Apple pushed out iOS 10.3, the company issued an iOS emergency patch for iDevices.

The security note accompanying iOS 10.3.1 said the fixed problem is a stack buffer overflow vulnerability addressed through improved input validation, and it allows an attacker within range to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip.
