It was made public last week that a serious flaw in Mac OS X Maverick, Mac OS X Mountain Lion, and iOS rendered users’ internet traffic insecure.

The bugs have now been fixed in the latest versions of Mac OS X Maverick, Mac OS X Mountain Lion, and iOS, but users who have not updated to these versions will still be vulnerable. Users of these operating systems should update them as soon as possible.
