Mac OS X 10.9.2

Apple has released software update v10.9.2 for all OS X Mavericks users. The update includes improvements to stability, compatibility and security.

The much-talked about SSL bug that could allow an attacker with a ‘privileged network position’ to capture or modify data protected by SSL/TLS has been patched in this update. The SSL vulnerability only affects Macs running OS X 10.9.
