Although there are still things to do ahead of the physical delivery of Tim Cook’s “busy Fall,” Apple just leveled up in a big way by releasing Mac security updates (below), as well as a biggish OS X 10.8.5 Update. And, yes, Apple still loves Snow Leopard, which is reasonable considering a plurality of users run OS X 10.6.

That is, if you choose Chitika over Net Applications data.

Security Update 2013-004 (Lion) (download)
— Security Update 2013-004 is recommended for all users and improves the security of Mac OS X
Lion Server Security Update also available

Security Update 2013-004 (Snow Leopard) (download)
— Security Update 2013-004 is recommended for all users and improves the security of Mac OS X
Security Update 2013-004 Server (Snow Leopard) Server also available

Safari 5.1.10 (download)
— Safari 5.1.10 for OS X Snow Leopard includes security fixes and is recommended for all Snow Leopard users

Safari 5.1.10 security content comes down to a single issue — “Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.” And, yes, that’s a scary, user-facing vulnerability in a technology that we’re entirely too reliant on.

OS X Lion and Snow Leopard Security content is a bit more involved with patches for Apache, Cetificates, Core Animation, Bind and more.
