Apple issues OS X security update with fix for 'FREAK attack'

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p class="intro">Apple has issued a number of new security updates for OS X. The issues addressed in the update include iCloud Keychain and the recent "FREAK attack" SSL/TLS vulnerability.</p> <!--break--> <p>Security Update 2015-002 fixes issues on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2, as well as OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.5. Issues addressed include a bug that would allow a malicious or compromised application to find the address of the kernel, as well as an issue that could allow programs to run arbitrary code with systems privileges.</p> <p>Apple detailed their fix for these problems, along with the "FREAK attack" on their support page:</p>
<p>Secure Transport accepted short ephemeral RSA keys, usually used only in export-strength RSA cipher suites, on connections using full-strength RSA cipher suites. This issue, also known as FREAK, only affected connections to servers which support export-strength RSA cipher suites, and was addressed by removing support for ephemeral RSA keys.</p>
<p>For more on this security update, you can see Apple's support documentation at the link below.</p> <p>Source: Apple Support</p> </div></div></div><div id="comment-wrapper-nid-30442"></div><img width='1' height='1' src='http://tipb.com.feedsportal.com/c/33998/f/616881/s/443c4b78/sc/4/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/>
