Hey guys. So, I have 10.6.8 Snow Leopard--bought my computer from the Apple Store in 2009. Now--and maybe it's all hype that's making me paranoid--but the security issues that are hitting the news/Internet regarding Apple operating systems have me a little concerned--even if people say my version of OSX isn't necessarily affected. With that said, here are my questions: 1) If 10.6.8 no longer receive security updates, does it make sense now to make the jump to Mountain Lion? I'm not a person that needs the latest and greatest OSX--my needs aren't that massive, I just want something to be secure in case I need to, for example, pay a bill online or buy something from Amazon--things everyone does but that involves the transfer of personal information. 2) If so, I'm also curious...do I download Lion 10.7? Or 10.8? Or do I first need to download 10.7, and then go to the Software Update in the menu section to then automatically download whatever latest OSX version for Lion is available? I'm referring to Lion specifically just because I'm not sure I absolutely NEED Maverick, and I know it requires your computer to be a bit more powerful. 3) Lastly, if and when I pay for and purchase Lion (either 10.7 or 10.8), will the actual download itself of Lion INCLUDE this latest security patch update that was released on Wednesday (this SSL security update)? Or, will I first have to download Lion, and then go to Software Updates to THEN download the security update/patch after the new OSX itself has downloaded and installed? Thanks guys!
