After seeding seven OS X 10.9.2 betas to developers, Apple has finally released the OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 that comes with a bunch of bug fixes and enhancements, along with a major security fix.
Although the change log doesn’t mention it, the OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 comes with fix for the SSL security bug that was patched in the recent iOS 7.0.6, which allowed an attacker to bypass SSL/TLS verification, putting the sensitive information of the user at risk.
Apart from the SSL security fix, the update comes with a host of new features and changes. Now, OS X users can make and receive FaceTime audio calls, as well as the call waiting support if the user is busy on another call.
Additionally, it also give users the ability to blocked iMessages from individual senders, which in my opinion is a pretty decent features.
Other improvements, include improved VoiceOver navigation in mail, Autofill improvements, VPN and audio fixes, and a lot of general enhancements and improvements. Along with the OS X Mavericks update, Apple also seeded security updates for OS X Mountain Lion and Lion.
If you’re a Mac user, it’s recommended to download the update as soon as possible in order to patch the critical security fix.
