Security Update:Apple Releases Security Updates for OS X Safari Users
Date and Time
OS X Safari Users
Apple released security updates for Safari for OS X Mavericks, Yosemite, and El Capitan to address multiple vulnerabilities.
Advanced Users: For a complete description of the security enhancement and affected software refer to About the Security Content of Safari 9.0.2 at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205639.
IT does not recommend upgrading to OS X El Capitan until further testing can be done as the new operating system is incompatible with nearly all of UCSF’s security/reporting software (Symantec Endpoint Protection, DDPE, and BigFix).
- OS X Mavericks v10.9.5
- OS X Yosemite v10.10.5
- OS X El Capitan v10.11
