If you’re using a Mac running on OS X Mavericks, here’s an update you wouldn’t want to miss. A few days ago, Apple released an update for iOS devices patching a web networking security hole and today, a similar update is available for Macs running on OS X Mavericks. On top of a security fix, the update, version 10.9.2, also brings other features and enhancements to FaceTime, iMessage, Mail, Safari and more.
While the 10.9.2 update does not list out the SSL vulnerability in the update list, Engadget has confirmed with Apple about it. The update also brings other security fixes, call waiting and FaceTime audio calling to desktop voice chats, the ability to block users in iMessage, as well as various audio, email and Safari bug safe.
Hit the App Store on your Mac now to update. If you are running on older versions of OS X, don’t worry, Apple says that separate security updates will be released soon.
