Security update for iOS 9 released by Apple, fixes over 100 issues
Apple has fixed over 100 issues on iOS 9 by sending out a security update. More than 30 flaws were discovered in WebKit, which is the browser engine used for Safari. For example, with a security breach, a malicious website could display content with a URL from a different site. A disturbing security breach was found in Apple Pay. The vulnerability could have allowed a hacker to discover your recent Apple Pay transactions.

Another issue now fixed was one that could have allowed someone using a malicious Game Center app to access a player's email address. And one flaw that has been fixed had made it possible for a hacker to send email that would appear to come from someone listed in the iPhone owner's contacts list.

The entire list of  security updates made by Apple can be found by clicking on the sourcelink. Each listing also mentions the original issue that Apple repaired with the update.
