If you’re an Apple customer, I sure hope you’ve enabled automatic software updates, because there are a lot of patches to download this week.
On Tuesday, Apple released a ton of security updates, including ones for products like iOS, OS X, iTunes, and more. The updates fix a wide variety of security vulnerabilities, from more lock screen bypass issues in iOS, to remote code execution flaws in OS X. I you use any of the products below, I recommend you visit my provided links to download the corresponding security updates as soon as you can:
- iOS 7.0.3 corrects three security flaws
- Safari 6.1 fixes 21 vulnerabilities, including potential drive-by download flaws
- OS X Mavericks v10.9 fixes many security issues
- Keynote 6 corrects minor security issue
- OX Server 3.0 patches seven security flaws
- Apple releases update for Remote Desktop 3.5.4 and 3.7
- Keep iTunes safe with version 11.1.2
If you’d like to keep abreast of the latest Apple security updates, be sure to bookmark their Security page, and you can find links to all their patches on the Download page, though I recommend you let their automatic update take care of the updates for you.
As an aside, for any of you waiting for my weekly Infosec video, I was unable to produce it by Friday due to an intense travel schedule. I’ll release the video some time early next week.
