Apple Patches 50 Vulnerabilities Across iOS, OS X, Safari


Apple has issued updates for IOS, OS X, Apple TV, Safari and its watch based operating system watchOS. Fifty-four vulnerabilities across OS X were patched Tuesday, including fixes for Mavericks v10.9.5, OS X Yosemite v10.10.5, and the most recent builds of OS X, El Capitan v10.11 and v10.11.1. These vulnerabilities could either lead to remote code execution, or allow a user or malicious application to cause execution of arbitrary code with kernel privileges or system privileges. The update also brings a handful of open source packages, such as OpenSSH, libxml2, OpenGL, and apache_mod_php, up to date. One of the update also fixes non-security, stability issues, including one that caused Bluetooth devices to disconnect, and one that prevented Mail from deleting messages in an offline Exchange account. Fifty issues, many which carry over from OS X, were also addressed in Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, updating it to 9.2.
