The update also contains fixes for three other vulnerabilities that have been discovered by Google's Project Zero research program.
It also addresses a long-standing Wi-Fi bug which has been plaguing Yosemite since its release. Apple unsuccessfully tried addressing this issue with the previous patch, so only time will tell if this update finally nails down the problem.
