Exclamation Safer Computing: 05/09/2016


It’s not surprising to find that the bugs behind the recent “triplesploit” in iOS also exist in Mac OS X, because Apple’s two operating systems are based on the same internals, albeit built in different ways for different hardware.

It looks as though the bugs aren’t merely shared by iOS and OS X, but are exploitable in both, give that Apple just pushed out two OS X updates .

Given the likely exploitability of the holes that are fixed by these updates, and the story behind them, we’re advising Mac users to update without delay.

Click on the 'Apple menu' in the top left of your screen, then choose 'About This Mac' and click the 'Software Update…' button.

It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

Done my iPad as soon as it requested the update!
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
