Earlier this week, Apple announced a few security updates for their supported versions of macOS. This includes Mojave (10.14), Catalina (10.15), and Big Sur (11.3). There is a known vulnerability that can successfully infect systems that are unpatched.
Any attack would present itself as an installable download, most likely through phishing, popups, or websites asking to install software. You can read the tech-talk version of it here.
