Safari 15.3 (new builds) Security Update for macOS Big Sur & Catalina
Available via software update for Big Sur & Catalina. (Included in Monterey 12.2.1.)
About Security fixes in Safari 15.3 (v. 16612. & 15612. lists a Webkit fix for CVE-2022-22620 that Apple notes may have been actively exploited.
"After installing this update, the build number for Safari 15.3 is 16612. on macOS Big Sur and 15612. on macOS Catalina."
(IMHO, this update should have been Safari 15.3.1, not just a build number change.)
macOS Monterey 12.2.1 Update (Security fix & Bluetooth Battery Drain fix)
(VPN or 3rd party Security software may cause problems with OS or security updates.
Read Apple's article on VPN and 3rd party software issues & the usual advice on updates.
Even though I don't use 3rd party addons, I install macOS updates from a Safe Mode boot.
