It took 4 days but Apple has finally released a fix for the SSL or “gotofail” vulnerability. It’s included in the OS X 10.9.2 update which can be downloaded and installed in the following ways:
• Apple menu > Software Update
• App Store > Updates
• Directly from the Apple website here or as a combo update here.
The 10.9.2 update and Lion/Mountain Lion security update fix more than just the SSL vulnerability discovered a few days ago. To read about all the addressed issues have a look at this article. Several issues with Apache, App Sandboxing, QuickLook and QuickTime were fixed and a pretty big Finder (ACL) bug too so this is an important update that should be installed asap.
Of course it’s not all bad news. The update bring some new functionality as well such as being able to FaceTime Audio to and from the Mac, call waiting for FaceTime, the ability to block iMessage senders and some Mail fixes.
