“Apple fixed dozens of vulnerabilities in its software on Monday, including 60 vulnerabilities in its operating system, OS X, and 43 in its mobile operating system, iOS,” Chris Brook reports for Threatpost.

“The updates mostly fix a number of glitches and bugs under the hood of the OS,” Brook reports. “As usual, the bulk of them apply to software libraries like OpenSSL, LibreSSL, and libxml2. Apple updated each library to their most recent versions to mitigate the issues.”
