macOS Big Sur and watchOS 7 also updated against Pegasus

macOS Big Sur

Apple released the iOS 14.8 and iPadOS 14.8 updates last night, as we reported this morning. These bring important security fixes that are supposed to make it impossible for the Pegasus spyware, which has already claimed many lives around the world, to function.

Well macOS and watchOS are also entitled to this new protection. Indeed, watchOS was updated last night to version 7.6.2 and macOS to version 11.6.

These updates therefore do not bring new features, but indicate, just like for iOS 14.8 and iPadOS 14.8, the arrival of a security patch Resorbing a flaw that allowed, via PDF file or web content, to execute malicious code on the target machine. Flaws that Pegasus malware used to take advantage of.

How do I install macOS Big Sur 11.6?
