Spy agencies and hackers at your local Starbucks can vacuum up Yahoo and ICQ chats and metadata about AOL's AIM users. These services are over a decade old -- why are they not fully encrypted?
After a multiday delay that irked users, Apple has released a system software update for OS X Mavericks that fixes what's become known as the "gotofail" security vulnerability.
Apple improves Mail compatibility with Gmail, and fixes other security and compatibility issues in the first update to Mavericks, OS X 10.9.1.
The update has been seeded to developers, but has yet to be made available to the public.
Internal builds of OS X 10.9.1 are circulating, suggesting Apple is actively working on features and bug fixes that will not be in the initial Mavericks release.
