Security Update 2017-002 (Yosemite and El Capitan)

By Agen G. N. Schmitz
http://tidbits.com/article/17243

Apple has released Security Update 2017-002 for OS X 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan, patching a number of vulnerabilities that were also included in the macOS 10.12.5 Sierra release (see "Apple Releases macOS 10.12.5, iOS 10.3.2, watchOS 3.2.2, and tvOS 10.2.1," 15 May 2017). For both El Capitan and Yosemite, the security update addresses a memory consumption issue that could lead to arbitrary code execution, fixes validation issues that could allow an application to read restricted memory, and resolves a memory corruption issue that could allow an application to escape its sandbox. (Free. For 10.10.5 Yosemite, 421.1 MB; for 10.11.6 El Capitan, 710.6 MB; security content release notes)
