Apple this week released its first milestone update for the OS X 10.9 Mavericks desktop operating system. Mavericks, Apple’s latest OS X release, first became generally available Oct. 22. The new OS X 10.9.1 release includes both stability and security updates.
On the security front, the OS X 10.9.1 update is narrowly focused on Apple’s Safari Web browser. OS X 10.9 originally shipped with Safari 7.0, which is now being updated to a patched Safari 7.0.1 release. In total, the Safari 7.0.1 update includes nine security updates for vulnerabilities found within Safari and its core WebKit rendering engine.
