The significant security flaw in Apple’s OS X Mavericks was identified last Friday and the fix is here. So do update your macs immediately, as this is critical.

OS X can be automatically updated by clicking the Apple logo on the top-left of your screen. But this is incremental and the better option is to manually download and apply the combo updater. It is available at the Apple Support page.

The combo updater applies a wholesale update of all affected system files instead of onlly specific files. This is the option I’ve adopted for over a decade now.

  1. Here is the editorial on Apple’s latest security flaw. http://j.mp/1cOmpYl

    “Apple should have been able to track down the faulty code. Some researchers complain about trouble reporting bugs to Apple, but surely something this serious would have warrented someone’s attention. In the end, it was a Google HTTPS engineer who pulled back the curtain, adding insult to injury.”
