Apple retires Snow Leopard from support, leaves 1 in 5 Macs vulnerable to attacks

Apple on Tuesday made it clear that it will no longer patch OS X 10.6, aka Snow Leopard, when it again declined to offer a security update for the four-and-a-half-year-old operating system.

As Apple issued an update for Mavericks, or OS X 10.9, as well as for its two predecessors, Mountain Lion (10.8) and Lion (10.7), Apple had nothing for Snow Leopard or its owners yesterday.

Apple patches critical OS X SSL bug with Mavericks update

Apple today updated OX Mavericks, plugging the embarrassing SSL security hole that the company left wide open in the operating system’s implementation of basic Internet encryption.

Mac users running Mavericks should update as soon as possible, as exploit code has already begun circulating on the Internet. Apple had the same flaw in iOS, which it patched over the weekend.

Major SSL flaw found in iOS, OS X

Security researchers revealed late Friday that iOS’s validation of SSL encryption had a coding error that bypassed a key validation step in the Web protocol for secure communications. As a result, communications sent over unsecured Wi-Fi hot spots could be intercepted and read while unencrypted, potentially exposing user password, bank data, and other sensitive data to hackers via man-in-the-middle attacks. Secured Wi-Fi networks, such as home and business networks with encryption enabled, are not affected.

How iOS 7′s new APIs change the game for business

And Apple is making iOS and OS X even safer while remaining truly useful for people in the new content and application management APIs debuting in iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 Mavericks, detailed later in this post. The move will create a huge, positive shift in attitudes about business use of mobile tech, and I daresay PC tech as well, especially as third-party tools and software developers adopt the APIs.
