Tuesday, Apple issued an update for its OS X Mavericks operating system (OS X 10.9.2) to address a critical SSL security flaw. This fix comes days after Apple released an iOS update to address the same bug.
OS X 10.9.2 also adds new features, including support for FaceTime audio calls, call waiting for FaceTime, and iMessage blocking on the Mac.
Though the official description of this system update doesn’t mention a security patch, Apple confirmed to Forbes that it is a fix for “the recent SSL encryption issue for both Mavericks and Mountain Lion.”
To get started with applying the update, simply click the Apple icon in the top-left section of your Mac’s toolbar, and then select Software Update.
