Alongside OS X 10.8.3, Apple this week rolled out Security Update 2013-001, the first official security release for 2013 from the Cupertino-based computer giant.
Apple has posted a typical security advisory in which it describes various vulnerabilities that have been patched for Mac OS X 10.6.8, Mac OS X Server 10.6.8, OS X Lion v10.7 to v10.7.5, OS X Lion Server v10.7 to v10.7.5, and OS X Mountain Lion v10.8 to v10.8.2.
Among the almost two dozen patches included in Security Update 2013-001, Apple mentions the malware tool that removes the most common (recently discovered) variants of malware.
“This update runs a malware removal tool that will remove the most common variants of malware. If malware is found, it presents a dialog notifying the user that malware was removed. There is no indication to the user if malware is not found,” Apple states.
