Apple Releases Security Update for Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite Users

Apple on Monday released an important security update for Mac owners. According to what the guys from Cupertino say, this update contains a fix for the critical issue with Network Time Protocol service on OS X and is highly recommended for Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite users. Apple asks Mac and MacBook owners to “install this update as soon as possible”.

The latest security update fixes the issue that was discovered by a group of Google’s security researchers and highlighted by the U.S. Government last Friday. The NTP service vulnerability can possibly allow hackers and cybercriminals to penetrate into your computer, that is why I suggest that you should not waste time and update right now.

Here’s what Apple writes about the update:

This update addresses a critical security issue with the software that provides the Network Time Protocol service on OS X, and is recommended for all users.

For more information on the security content of this update see http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT1222.

If you own a Mac running OS X Mountain Lion, Mavericks or Yosemite, you can download and install the latest security update from the Mac App Store.
