Thunderstrike Vulnerability to be fixed in OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 update

An update of 10.10.2 is in the starting blocks for OS X Yosemite. As expected, new features and fixes and security are included.

Updates for Apple operating systems should not be delayed. Not only iOS 8.1.3 but OS X 10.10.2. For this update of Yosemite, 9to5Mac was able to get the release notes before the time.

In the program, the addition of iCloud Drive in backup feature integrated to Time Machine OS X is included. It is possible to trace the changes to files stored in iCloud Drive and restore a file that may have been deleted inadvertently.

In terms of improvements, it is about improving the audio and video synchronization with Bluetooth headsets, Safari browser stability, the performance of the VoiceOver screen reader for accessibility.

For bug fixes, it has the correction of a WiFi disconnection problem but reliability of WiFi was already supposed to have been improved with the previous maintenance. Another correction will focus on a problem of slow loading of Web pages and a bug to load the content of an email from Spotlight (research in OS X) despite deactivation in Mail preferences.

To this we can add security fixes identified by iMore along with these patches for vulnerabilities disclosed by the Google Project Zero. This will also be the opportunity to provide a fix for the so-called Thunderstrike attack. A bootkit that can spread via malicious devices connected to the Thunderbolt port.
