Apple Addresses Meltdown and Spectre in macOS

Apple Addresses Meltdown and Spectre in macOS

After the High Sierra 10.13.2 Supplemental Update in early January, Apple has on Tuesday released security updates for its older macOS versions - and El Capitan.

The High Sierra update is relatively minor. It also fixes an issue with an SMB server.

The security update is included with macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 and it is also available as a separate security update for users of Sierra on 10.12.6 and El Capitan on 10.11.6.

Interestingly, Jann Horn, the Google Project Zero researcher who was one of several to discover Meltdown and Spectre, is referenced three times in this security update. These same actions were already taken in a prior update to High Sierra. Check out the source link below for more details on the update.
