Apple releases Safari 14.1 with WebKit patch for macOS Catalina and Mojave – EzAnime.net

Earlier this week, Apple released iOS 14.5.1 and macOS Big Sur 11.3.1 with a major security update that fixed a serious WebKit issue. Today, the company released Safari 14.1 for users running macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave, which also fixes the exploit that was being used for malicious web content.

As Apple detailed earlier this week, the exploit found in WebKit had been exploited to run arbitrary code on a user’s device without consent.

As the security breach has already been fixed for users running iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur, Apple has now released a Safari update with the same security enhancements for users running macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave.
