Apple quickly released a patch for CVE-2014-9295 which was for a flaw with NTP. NTP is what keeps the system time in sync by communicating with network time servers. While there are special circumstances required, the flaws allowed a remote attacker to execute code. This was the first usage of Apple's automatic security updates. Apple only patched OS X 10.8, 10.9. and 10.10. We still have customers running many systems on OS X 10.6. We complied NTP for OS X 10.6.8 with this patch and packaged it into an easy to install package. Just run the package, no reboot required.
