Intego: Update to Safari 9.0.2 now or it might be your Mac’s weakest security link

“Apple has updated its Safari web browser to version 9.0.2, available for OS X Mavericks 10.9.5, OS X Yosemite 10.10.5, OS X El Capitan 10.11 and 10.11.1,” Derek Erwin writes for Intego.

“If this update applies to you, it’s a good idea to install the latest Safari version immediately — otherwise it may become your weakest security link,” Erwin writes. “Mac users can install the updated Safari browser by choosing Apple menu > App Store…, or the updates may be obtained from the Mac App Store.”

Erwin writes, “Updates only take a few moments to install and, as is the case with Apple’s Safari 9.0.2 update, usually include critical security patches.”

    1. If you’re trying to be funny, you’re not. Want you state is either hubris or just plain dumb.

      There may always be some users that have no interest or ability to maintain security. However, it is also true that all software is written by humans, even Apple’s code. So given that hacks and exploits keep happening to Apple, it’s obvious that there are some users who are more clever than Apple as well.

      A quick stroll through https://support.apple.com/downloads/ shows that Apple has been issuing all kinds of Security Updates and bug fixes lately. I’m glad Apple tries to take security seriously, but at this point I actually question if the quality assurance is anywhere near as good as it was under Jobs.

      1. You fail to realize that Apple (or software in general) can be patched to fix any security issue.

        Users can’t.
        No matter how secure a system is, the user can be compromised. always.

          1. No, people have proven time after time they REFUSE to learn.

            If people followed security guidelines properly we wouldn’t have much need for tech support, anti virus, malware removal tools.. list goes on.

            Texting while driving is illegal and very dangerous, yet people still do it. People texting while driving kill others, doesn’t stop other people from doing it. “Won’t happen to me, i’m a good texter while driving”
