Apple issues Mac OS X patches, Facebook integration

Apple issues Mac OS X patches, Facebook integration | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple has released Mac OS X 10.8.2 with security updates for Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, iOS and iTunes – along with a single sign-on feature for Facebook and a Java patch.

 

Apple recommends that users upgrade using System Update, which can determine what fixes are already installed on the system, thus lightening the heft of the download.

 

As for the Facebook angle, users can now opt to have Facebook contact information integrated with the Mac’s native Contacts and Game Center applications. Users gain a single sign-on and the ability to be alerted to Facebook activity via Mac OS X's Notification Center.

Mise à jour Java pour OS X Lion et Snow Leopard

Mise à jour Java pour OS X Lion et Snow Leopard | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Une révision Java pour OS X Lion est disponible [1.0/2012-001 - 64 Mo Mo - OS X 10.7] ainsi que pour Snow Leopard [1.0 - Update 7 - 76 Mo - OS X 10.6]. Elle apporte des correctifs de sécurité et d'autres participant à sa stabilité.

 

===> Cette mise à jour comble tout particulièrement une importante faille exploitée par un malware qui pouvait être récupéré depuis un site web et capable ensuite d'exécuter avec les droits d'administrateur un applet Java contenant un code nuisible... <===

Apple updates Java after malware spreads

Apple updates Java after malware spreads | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Enterprise users of Java for the Mac OS X should ensure their machines are updated with the latest security patch from Apple, released Tuesday.

 

The update, for both Lion (10.7.3) and Snow Leopard (10.6.8) versions of the platform, closes a dozen holes in Java 1.6.0_29, "the most serious of which may allow an untrusted Java applet to execute arbitrary code outside the Java sandbox," according to Apple.

 

That presumably refers to CVE-2012-0507, which researchers at F-Secure said Monday was being used to spread the latest variant of the password-stealing Flashback trojan.

 

===> Computers can be infected simply by users visiting a malicious web page, a scenario known as a drive-by download. <===

 

                                      ===> UPDATE!!! <===

MacPlus : Mac OS X : mise à jour de Java

MacPlus : Mac OS X : mise à jour de Java | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

On évoquait hier le retour du cheval de Troie Flashback, dont la dernière variante infecte les Mac par l'intermédiaire d'une faille Java - une faille corrigée depuis un moment par Oracle, mais qu'Apple tarde à mettre à disposition des des utilisateurs. Cupertino a t-il pris le pouls de la menace ?

 

===> Il est en tout cas assez singulier de voir justement tomber une mise à jour de Java pour Mac OS X, numérotée 1.6.0_31 ! <===

 

===> Apple ne fait pas mention de ce fameux ver, mais indique que cette version apporte des améliorations de compatibilité, sécurité et fiabilité. La mise à jour, à récupérer via le mécanisme traditionnel des préférences système, pèse 66 Mo. <===

New OS X malware variant attacks unpatched Macs | ZDNet

New OS X malware variant attacks unpatched Macs | ZDNet | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

A new malware variant sets out to punish those who haven’t been keeping up to date with updates.

 

Patching OS X is so simple, but yet there are people who still put it off. A new malware variant sets out to punish those who haven’t been keeping up to date with updates.

 

The new variant is a Trojan horse called ‘Flashback.G’ and is makes use of two exploits found on older versions of the Java runtime. Users with macs running OS X 10.6 ‘Snow Leopard’ are particularly at risk since this version came with Java preinstalled while 10.7 ‘Lion’ did not.

 

According to security firm Intego, this malware uses three tricks to try to get itself installed onto a system: read more...
