OS X 10.10.5, OS X Server, Safari, and iTunes updates

Apple has released the following, now available through the App Store:

  • OS X Yosemite 10.10.5, with a load of security fixes, and much more.
  • OS X Server 4.1.5, which adds compatibility with 10.10.5 and improves MDM command reliability.
  • Safari 8.0.8 (bundled with 10.10.5), 7.1.8, and 6.2.8, each with important security fixes.
  • iTunes 12.2.2, with various improvements too.

Happy downloading and installing.

Additional information:

The security fixes in 10.10.5 include updating Apache 2.4.16, PHP to 5.5.27, Bluetooth (several), cURL to 7.43.0, Stefan Esser’s dyld vulnerability as expected, many kernel issues including “improved code signature validation”, libxml2 to 2.9.2, OpenSSL to 0.9.8zg, PostgreSQL to 9.2.13, Python to 2.7.10, QuickTime 7, sudo to 1.7.10p9, and more. Where relevant these are also offered in Security Update 2015-006 for OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.5.

Safari 8.0.8 (and earlier as appropriate) has several important fixes to WebKit and related code.

OS X Server 4.1.5 contains one important security fix in BIND (DNS), updating it to version 9.9.7-P2.

It also looks – I am not holding my breath, though – as if the Finder column view bug (resulting in over-wide columns) might be fixed at last.
