Apple has released an update to OS X that fixes a major security hole in OSX that was discovered last month. The hole is the result of a faulty line of code that allows hackers to camouflage themselves as a verified website. Needless to say a lot of Apple users were violated by hackers. Luckily for all of us Apple users, the security hole was discovered by Apple before hackers could seriously exploit it. Apple noticed the hole and quickly released the patch. Initially the iOS7 updated was designed to fix this hole on iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Unfortunately for whatever reason the iOS7 updated fixed the hole in iPhones and iPads but not in the latest Macs. This lead to a mad scramble by Apple to create a new updated just for the Macs.
The update which was released back on February 25th updates the security on all Macs and is available by selecting the software update option inside the Mac's Apple menu. The updated is designed to patch the software hole in Mac's running on both OS X Maverick and Mountain Lion. The update is version 10.9.2 and in addition to patching this massive security hole also updates some aesthetic and design features of Mail, Safari, FaceTime, and iMessage.
