Hopefully, by now, you've installed Apple's patch for Mavericks that guards against the Shellshock exploit in Bash. At the time I write this, it's still not clear how those of us on Yosemite are supposed to protect ourselves, outside of manually recompiling Bash. Not quite relatedly, I ran across a PDF from Apple last week entitled iOS Security which offers a wealth of information on the security systems built into iOS at every level. It's a fantastic read, and explained a great deal about how the startup sequence on an iOS device works.

Stay safe,
Aaron
