Apple released a security update for the recently discovered ‘Shellshock’ security flaw that potentially affected Mac OS-X users using Mavericks, Mountain Lion, or Lion.
We recommend that Mac OS-X users apply the fix (OS-X Bash Update) released by Apple for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and OS X 10.7 Lion. The update can be found on the Apple support download page: https://support.apple.com/downloads/
As a reminder:
- Make sure you have applied the latest security patches for all your computers and your mobile devices.
- Be VERY suspicious of any emails asking you to change passwords and encourage you to click on a link embedded in the email. Legitimate emails will NEVER ask you to divulge information such as password, Social Security number, or bank-account information.
