A researcher published exploit code for a vulnerability in WebKit, the web browser engine that powers Apple's Safari, along with other apps on macOS, iOS, and Linux.

Linus Henze, the developer of the exploit, says that the vulnerability has been patched in WebKit sources but the fix is yet to reach the Safari browser.
