Safari 8.0.2, 7.1.2, and 6.2.2

After releasing updates to the Safari Web browser and quickly recalling them back in the first week of December, Apple has now released Safari 8.0.2 for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, along with Safari 7.1.2 for 10.9 Mavericks and Safari 6.2.2 for 10.8 Mountain Lion. The release notes for Safari 8.0.2 are similar to the pulled version, fixing a bug that prevented history from syncing across devices if iCloud Drive wasn’t turned on, improving performance of WebGL graphics on Retina displays, and enabling username and password imports from Firefox. But there is one more — a fix for the issue that caused some users to not be able to access Safari after installing version 8.0.1. All three versions of Safari receive a fix for an issue that could prevent a saved password from being autofilled after two devices were added to iCloud Keychain. The three releases also include the same security updates from the Safari 8.0.1/7.1.1/6.2.1 triumvirate, including fixes for WebKit vulnerabilities that could lead to execution of arbitrary code due to memory corruption issues and user interface spoofing. All three versions of Safari are available from Software Update. (Free)
