Apple is released a new version of OS X El Capitan Security Update for fixing an additional kernel issue that could cause Macs running the operating system to freeze up and become unresponsive. For customers’ protection, Apple doesn’t disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until an investigation has occurred and patches or releases are available.
Keeping your software up-to-date is one of the most important things that you can do to maintain the security of your Apple product. The 2016-003 Security Update for OS X El Capitan was originally released on December 13 alongside macOS Sierra 10.12.2, but was today reissued with the fix.
Apple has released an urgent update to its desktop operating systems and the Safari web browser to block a hack that could have turned the machines into spying tools. The security flaw affects the El Capitan and Yosemite Mac operating systems, and is the same that could have let hackers take complete control of iPhone devices, which Apple fixed with the iOS 9.3.5 update last week.
