Apple released Safari 9.1.3 and the OS X security update yesterday, citing the work of Citizen Lab and Lookout, the two research teams that discovered the iOS exploit that Apple patched last week. The description of the vulnerability in the Safari update release notes says that “visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to arbitrary code execution,” which sounds identical to last week’s iOS flaw.
