by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Apple has released Security Update 2016-006 [1] for OS X 10.10 Yosemite and Security Update 2016-002 [2] for 10.11 El Capitan, bringing a few select patches from the macOS 10.12.1 Sierra release to the two older operating systems (see “macOS 10.12.1 Sierra, watchOS 3.1, and tvOS 10.0.1 Mostly Fix Bugs [3],” 24 October 2016). For both systems, the security update addresses a couple of memory corruption issues and an SGI image parsing issue. (Free. For 10.10.5 Yosemite, 473.6 MB; for 10.11.6 El Capitan, 414.9 MB; release notes [4])
