Additionally, Apple has also macOS High Sierra version 10.13.3 that focuses on security, stability, and bug fixes. Although the company had previously released a fix for High Sierra to protect against Meltdown and Spectre, it also released a new update for that version of macOS on Tuesday to address the vulnerability that can be exploited by both of those attacks. These are created to tackle vulnerabilities with Meltdown and Spectre on older MacBooks that use macOS Sierra and OS X El Captain. As CNET spotted, Apple posted about the security updates on its support site. If you're running El Capitan, you'll need to upgrade to version 10.11.6 and those running macOS Sierra will need to upgrade to version 10.12.6 to receive the security update. The updates are dubbed Security Update 2018-001.
Less-hyped, but still serious, are vulnerabilities in the macOS kernel that include an exploitable race condition (CVE-2018-4092), a validation issue (CVE-2018-4093), and memory initialization bug (CVE-2018-4090) that could also allow restricted memory to be read.
The Meltdown issue was first disclosed at the beginning of the month alongside another issue called Spectre that many companies have said is harder to exploit. A patch had already been pushed out for macOS High Sierra, but not everyone is running the latest version. Alternatively, it can also be updated through iTunes.
