Apple has released OS X Lion 10.7.4, an update that features a number of important security fixes, some general improvements, as well as an update to the Safari browser.

One improvement that comes bundled with OS X 10.7.4 is a fix for the bug which left users’ FileVault passwords stored outside of encryption in easy to read plain text. Before the alarm bells start ringing, it is worth noting that this issue only occurs for those OS X users who upgraded to Lion from a previous installation of Snow Leopard. For Macs that came with OS X Lion installed as standard, the issue is not relevant.

One of the upgrades featured in this update is the inclusion of a new version of the Safari browser. As with the rest of the additions of this update, the latest version of Safari brings minor stability improvements, with Apple adding no further information. For detailed information and an extensive list of the changes, head on over to the official Apple support page or check the security content of the update.
