Safari Zero-Day Exploit Can Takeover A Mac Computer Entirely

The Zero-Day vulnerability in Apple’s Internet browser Safari makes Mac computers vulnerable to attacks.

Let’s first give you information about what is Zero Day deficit. The Zero Day deficit means that on the day of the discovery of a weak point in software, hackers actually have been using that vulnerability for a long time.


Two hackers were discovered in Safari at the White Hat Hackers conference in Vancouver, Canada. One is bad enough to get rid of Apple’s sandbox, the other is more worrisome because it allows hackers to have access to both root and kernel on Mac computers. This means that in any attack your Mac can be easily captured.

The real problem is that this incident happened before. In 2018, another zero-day gap was discovered, which allowed hackers to access the Touch Bar in the MacBook. The good news is that Apple is aware of one of these two new gaps and has begun to work to correct it.

The phoenhex & qwerty team were rewarded with $ 45,000 for the research team who found this gap.
