Like any other manufacturer committed to its customers, such as Microsoft and Samsung, Apple has just released a new security update for devices that today are still managed by macOS Mojave or High Sierra, terminals that are not compatible with the latest versions of macOS.
This new security update, baptized as 2020-006 is responsible for patching Three security issues Google’s Project Zero had found and brought to the attention of Apple. These updates are available through the Mac App Store in High Sierra and in System Preferences in Mojave.
These updates are available for versions 10.13.6 from High Sierra Y Mojave 10.14.6, the latest versions Apple released of these operating systems, updates that solve security problems detected that we show you below:
- The execution of arbitrary code when processing a typeface created for malicious purposes. The update addresses a memory corruption issue by improving input validation. Project Zero code number CVE-2020-2793.
- Executing arbitrary code with kernel privileges when running a malicious application. This update has been fixed by addressing a type confusion issue by improving state management. Project Zero code number CVE-2020-27932.
- Disclosure of data from kernel memory by malicious application. A memory initialization issue has been fixed that allowed this to access kernel memory. Project Zero code number CVE-2020-27950.
Needless to say, like any security application that is launched for our device, it is highly recommended to install it as soon as possible. This update requires that we restart the computer, so we can install when we are going to turn off the computer until the next day.
