Après Microsoft qui a publié un Patch Tuesday bien fourni en correctifs critiques, c’est au tour d’Apple de mener un grande vague de mises à jour de sécurité sur plusieurs produits. Les OS de la firme de Cupertino sont bien évidement aux premières loges.

Différentes versions de Mac OS X sont concernées : OS X El Capitan 10.11.2, OS X Yosemite 10.10.5, et Mavericks 10.9.5. Au total, la Security Update 2015-008 corrige 54 vulnérabilités dans des services et des composants tel qu’App Sandbox, Bluetooth, Compression, Configuration Profiles, CoreGraphics, CoreMedia Playback, EFI, File Bookmark, Hypervisor, ImageIO, Intel Graphics Driver, IOAcceleratorFamily, IOHIDFamily, IOKit SCSI, Kernel, Keychain Access, OpenGL, Sandbox, Security, etc. A noter que la moitié des failles découvertes sont critiques, car elles peuvent permettre à des pirates d’exécuter du code arbitraire à distance.

One of the bugs fixed in iOS and Apple TV was first reported a year ago and fixed in OS X in May of this year.


Apple has released new versions of iOS, OS X, Safari and Apple TV, and disclosed the vulnerabilities fixed in those new versions. A total of 60 unique vulnerabilities are addressed in the products.


===> As is common with Apple, some of the vulnerabilities are quite old. <===


iOS 7.1.2 fixes 44 vulnerabilities in the previous version. These include two lock screen bugs and two which could allow bypass of Find My iPhone and Activation Lock, the new anti-theft measures. The new version also adds encryption of attachments in the Mail app, a problem first reported two months ago. The usual long list of WebKit bugs is fixed and the list of trusted root certificates was updated.

Apple security update fixes iOS vulnerability

Apple security update fixes iOS vulnerability | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
The tech giant fixes a security problem in iOS that affected encrypted connections. Apple on Friday released the latest update of its mobile operating system. It's of note because it fixes an SSL connection issue, an important encryption vulnerability.




SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is one of the most basic forms of encrypting Internet traffic. Without it, almost anybody can see what you're doing online. According to Apple's fulldescription of the update, the software previously had problems validating the authenticity of the connection, and the software fix restores steps that were missing in the validation process.

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.

While Patch Tuesday is a well-known event for Microsoft and Adobe users, Apple product owners this week received a dose of reality when they found themselves on the receiving end of several security updates.

Apple released multiple updates that touch most of its product portfolio and Apple fans can look forward to more of the same as the company's devices are targeted by cybercriminals, according to Symantec blogger and senior information developer Dick O'Brien. While the number of threats is miniscule compared to what Microsoft, Google and Adobe users face, they are increasing.
