Following today’s widely reported breach of security affecting Apple’s employees, 1 Infinite Loop has issued Java for OS X 2013-001, an update intended to address the issues leading to the hack. Intended for OS X 10.7 and later, the download — available now through Software Update — updates Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_41. It also includes a new malware removal tool.
In addition to the Java update, Apple has rolled out version 11.0.2 of iTunes via Software Update. This release lets users sort songs and other content by composer, improves app performance when syncing large playlists and fixes a bug that was preventing some purchases from appearing in users’ libraries. It also brings with it the usual “stability and performance improvements” — we love those things!
