Apple Issues SSL Fix For OS X As Well

Apple has stepped up and issued a fix for the SSL flaw in the OS X operating system now too, following up on the previous patch for iOS products. For a time, I thought Apple was going pull it's all-too-familiar "silence is golden" policy on security matter, but they got things sorted out pretty quickly, so props to them. Mobile devices got iOS version 7.0.6 a few days ago, and now we have OS X version 10.9.2 for Mac desktop and laptop computers. These are important fixes, as they address a flaw in Apple's implementation of the SSL and TLS security protocols - so if you have an Apple device, please get patched!
