Plus, the security update includes the contents of OS X Bash Update 1.0, bringing the Bash patches to everyone (see “Apple Updates Bash for the Shellshock Vulnerability,” 29 September 2014). It’s available via Software Update or via direct download from Apple’s Support Downloads Web site. (All updates are free. For 10.8 Mountain Lion, 152 MB; for
