Apple zero-day spyware patches extended to cover older Macs, iPhones and iPads


Last week, we warned about the appearance of two critical zero-day bugs that were patched in the very latest versions of macOS (version 13, also known as Ventura), iOS (version 16), and iPadOS (version 16).

Zero-days, as the name suggests, are security vulnerabilities that were found by attackers, and put to real-life use for cybercriminal purposes, before the Good Guys noticed and came up with a patch.

Simply put, there were zero days during which even the most proactive and cybersecurity conscious users amongst us could have patched ahead of the crooks.
