Apple secures Safari against FREAK attacks

Gregg Keizer | March 11, 2015
Apple on Monday patched the FREAK flaw in both OS X and iOS, issuing updates for both operating systems to protect users of its Safari browser.

iOS 8.2 patched five additional vulnerabilities, and Security Update 2015-002 fixed four others.

iOS 8.2 can be downloaded over the air from iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches, or though iTunes. From an iPhone, users must touch the "Settings" icon, then the "General" button on the resulting screen. Tapping "Software Update" will kick off the update process.

OS X's Security Update 2015-002 can be retrieved by selecting "App Store" from the Apple menu, then clicking on the "Updates" icon at the top right of the store's window.
