Two security holes closed in Monterey, but not in Big Sur or Catalina


The release of a new version of macOS Monterey is usually accompanied by a security update for the two previous operating systems, in this case macOS Catalina and Big Sur. Except that it has not (yet) been the case following macOS 12.3.1.

Available since last Thursday, macOS 12.3.1 fixes issues with external displays, Bluetooth, and eGPU support for Intel Macs. But this new version also contains two security patches: a flaw allowing a malicious app to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges; and a second related to the Intel Graphics card drivers.

macOS Monterey users live without the fear of experiencing these vulnerabilities. But Intego is concerned about the lack of security updates for Catalina and Big Sur. Especially since these flaws have been actively exploited, revealed Apple. The owners of his Macs must therefore squeeze the buttocks cross your fingers while waiting for a gesture from Apple.
