“Apple is aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited,” the company said when describing the issues in security advisories published on Friday.

The two zero-day vulnerabilities were addressed in iOS 16.4.1, iPadOS 16.4.1, macOS Ventura 13.3.1, and Safari 16.4.1 with improved input validation and memory management.

Apple says the list of affected devices is quite extensive, and it includes:

  • iPhone 8 and later,
  • iPad Pro (all models),
  • iPad Air 3rd generation and later,
  • iPad 5th generation and later,
  • iPad mini 5th generation and later,
  • and Macs running macOS Ventura.

In February, Apple addressed another WebKit zero-day (CVE-2023-23529) exploited in attacks to trigger OS crashes and gain code execution on vulnerable iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
