The new update is going to bring along a major security fix which was much needed and alongside it is going to features a few changes which will prove to be quite useful. All the users of this OS should be downloading the update right away.
The security fix in the update is for the SSL/TLS bug which gave access to an attacker to some sensitive information on machines on a network. It is being said that the bug was also present in the iOS but was patched in the iOS 7.0.6 and now is again being patched in the OS X.
The other useful changes mentioned earlier refer to the FaceTime audio which will allow users to make and receive voice calls to an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and other Macs with the help of an Internet connection. The FaceTime audio and video calls are going to have a call waiting options as well now. Other features will include the option to block iMessages, apply bug fixes for Mail app and an improvement for the Safari Autofill.
