    Apple today released OS X 10.9.2, which includes a fix for a major SSL security flaw that first came to light on Friday, after the release of iOS 7.0.6.

    The bug, which was introduced in the form of a single line of errant code that allowed an attacker to bypass SSL/TLS verification routines, left OS X users vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack. Shared wired or wireless networks could allow an attacker to intercept communications on affected machines, acquiring sensitive information like login credentials and passwords, or injecting harmful malware.

    While the SSL vulnerability was first introduced to iOS in 2012, it only affects Macs running OS X 10.9. Lion and Mountain Lion users are not affected.

    OS X 10.9.2 was first seeded to developers in December and has seen seven beta iterations since that time. Along with an emergency fix for the SSL bug, OS X 10.9.2 also includes FaceTime Audio, new blocking controls for iMessage and FaceTime, call waiting support for FaceTime, Mail fixes for bugs with fetching messages, AutoFill improvements, and several other bug fixes and general improvements.

    It is recommended that all users running OS X 10.9 Mavericks upgrade to OS X 10.9.2 as soon as possible to disable the vulnerability.

    - OS X Mavericks Update v10.9.2 (859.70 MB)
    - OS X Mavericks Update v10.9.2 (Combo) (859.70 MB)

    Alongside OS X 10.9.2, Apple has also released security updates for OS X Mountain Lion and Lion:

    - Security Update 2014-001 (Mountain Lion) (115.8 MB)

    - Security Update 2014-001 (Lion) (123.40 MB)
    - Security Update 2014-001 Server (Lion) (173.60 MB)

    God, I hope it fixes the most annoying Safari bug where it loads a random page without finishing typing the URL.

    I hope it fixes odd window placement bugs and failing to wake from sleep. Oh and the weird 'your computer is out of memory' bug that my late 2012 iMac got last week... I'm checking this update careful Apple...

    Perhaps with a fix that caused some other issues or something like that, right?

    God I hope it fixes the issue with Microsoft Silverlight on Netflix where it stops streaming in HD (I doubt it) and also Apple TV needs a update where it fixes Netflix from snapping back to SD.

    769mb for a late 2013 rMBP

    460mb (or there a bouts) for a 2012 MBA

    Wonder why the huge difference in size?

    With this release Mavericks achieves a good maturity level. The last weeks with 10.9.2 were much better than with the previous versions, especial Mail.app has become much better.

    Pretty much anyone/everyone given that that is the usual time updates get released (it's not always the case, but more often than not).
