Apple published an update to their latest OS X, Mavericks v10.9, which is recommended for all OS X users.
It improves the stability, compatibility, and security and includes:
- Improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, and fixes for users with custom Gmail settings
- Improves the reliability of Smart Mailboxes and search in Mail
- Fixes an issue that prevented contact groups from working properly in Mail
- Resolves an issue that prevented VoiceOver from speaking sentences that contain emoji
- Fixes an issue that prevented iLife and iWork apps from updating on non-English systems
- Addresses an issue that may cause multiple prompts to unlock “Local items” keychain
- Addresses an issue that may cause Japanese keyboards to retain a previously used language
- Includes Safari 7.0.1
- Fixes an issue that could cause Safari to become unresponsive when filling out forms on fedex.com, stubhub.com, and other websites
- Improves Credit Card Autofill compatibility with websites
- Improves VoiceOver compatibility with facebook.com
- Updates Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar
So far, not too much about security. But, there is more.
Apple also released a special KB about the Safari 7.0.1 security issues as well which is described as CVE-2013-5227.
- Impact: User credentials may be disclosed to an unexpected site via autofill
Description: Safari may have autofilled user names and passwords into a subframe from a different domain than the main frame. This issue was addressed through improved origin tracking.
If you are a Safari user, it is recommended to install this update immediately.
