The problem is said to be caused by a fault in the session rendering pipeline. Apple says it has fixed it with improved session tracking.

This vulnerability has not been updated for macOS Ventura, as the problem likely occurred only for macOS Sonoma.

In addition to the update for macOS, iOS 17.2.1 was also recently released. This update to the mobile OS did not come with any security fixes. However, a number of bug fixes have been implemented in this edition.
