Security Update 2014-002 1.0 for OS X Released for Mac
Apple has released a series of security updates for OS X, with support for OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, Lion, and Lion Server. The update is simply labeled as Security Update 2014-002 and includes Safari 7.0.3, and is now widely available through the App Store or by downloading the updater dmg directly from Apple.
The update is recommended for all Mac users to install. Accompanying notes are very brief, stating simply that the update “improves the security of OS X.”, but the full security notes can be found below for those interested.
Typically the easiest way to download and install the update is through the Mac App Store, accessible through the Apple menu and “Software Update” feature. Users can also choose to download the appropriate update from Apple with the links below:
Even though the update is small, it’s still recommended to start a quick backup of the Mac with Time Machine before beginning. To complete installation, the computer will need to restart.
iOS users will also find a similarly small update available for their devices with the concurrent release of iOS 7.1.1.
