But best of all, in addition to bug fixes, the company also made security improvements to both operating systems. Some of those improvements include patches for multiple zero-day exploits, a software vulnerability that attackers discovered before the vendor even knew it existed. The normal thing and that is why they are called zero-day is that there are no patches for these vulnerabilities, so it is very likely that the attacks will be successful.
With the release of macOS Monterey 12.3.1 Apple has released patches for multiple zero-day exploits. One of the patched exploits affected both iOS and macOS devices. According to Apple, the exploit allowed malicious apps to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. But the thing does not stop there. A second exploit found in Intel Graphics drivers, and which only affected macOS, could lead to kernel memory disclosure.
