Apple has released security updates for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and Safari to address two critical vulnerabilities. Apple has stated they are aware these issues are actively exploited. CISA has added these vulnerabilities to their Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) list.
These vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to run malicious code on a vulnerable device and elevate their privileges.
* A flaw in "IOSurfaceAccelerator" might allow an app to execute code with kernel privileges.
* Executing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution.
The Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium recommends system administrators to patch vulnerable systems as soon as possible and to analyse system and network logs for any suspicious activity.
Update the installation to one of the latest versions:
* macOS Big Sur 11.7.6
* macOS Monterey 12.6.5
* iOS 15.7.5 and iPadOS 15.7.5
* Safari 16.4.1
* iOS 16.4.1 and iPadOS 16.4.1
