Apple on Tuesday updated its Mac OS X operating system to patch 31 vulnerabilities, including a wireless bug that went public 1 November as the first flaw in a month-long disclosure campaign.

The security update, Apple’s seventh of the year, fixes flaws in its own operating system code as well as in several third-party applications and components bundled with Mac OS X.
