Hmm, while OS X Snow Leopard is not dead, per se, relatives of this five-year-old desktop operating system are gathering at bedside — Mac security has moved on, folks, update appropriately.

In related news, Apple has also shipped iOS 7.1.1, which endeavors to finally quash TouchID issues and brings forward a number of bug fixes.
