OS X Updates: 10.7.5, 10.8.2 supplementals available
As incremental OS X updates go, these Lion and Mountain Lion supplementals are tiny at just 2MB and 26.7MB, respectively. Nevertheless, there are important patches for headline grabbing issues baked in, including balky Time Machine backups, app launching, secure website access using Safari and more.

• OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update, download

Apple is saying that OS X Lion 10.7.5 Supplemental Update isn’t required if the user has installed build 11G63 of OS X 10.7.5 Update — you can discover which version is installed on your Mac by going to the Apple Menu, clicking “About This Mac” and then clicking “More Info.”
As of this writing, Apple hadn’t yet published the security content of these two OS X updates — it generally takes a day or three for that to get published.
