The newest update patches vulnerability CVE-2021-1844, which was discovered by Clément Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group and Alison Huffman of Microsoft Browser Vulnerability Research. This vulnerability was discovered in WebKit, a browser engine developed by Apple, and is implemented in Apple’s web browser application, Safari. This vulnerability allowed the processing of maliciously crafted web content which could lead to arbitrary code execution. The patch fixed a memory corruption issue to address the bug in Safari and is, publicly, the sole reason for the available updates.
