This release contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
On their new flagship phones for iOS8. If Apple devs were really that thorough, I doubt that would have passed the first round of tests. On the other hand, I've noticed patches on RHEL take longer to release than Ubuntu which take longer than other Linux distros. But I'm not sure OSX is delayed due to rigorous testing.
It could simply be that considering that considering their user base, Apple puts any patches through a much more rigorous testing than a linux distro typically does.
Yeah, I was really pissed when RHEL released a patch for a kernel bug last week and it disabled the phone app on my iPhone. *#$^ing RedHat.
I'd also be very happy if somebody could tell me what GIMP does that Photoshop doesn't. It's free. if it shaves man-hours off my work, then load me up with the tips. I ain't gonna switch, but I ain't above using both.
but if that sandbox can ping...

No. In recent versions of IOS, Macs do not run local web servers.
Sure they do.
People have to add in a web server by themselves
Oh, you mean by default. Sure, it doesn't run by default, but see below. Now, these 3rd party web servers that people install. Let me guess what one of the most popular might be (due to ease of install). MAMP? They'd be better off using the httpd provided in the OS from Apple since that *might* get updated by Apple (but people tend to ignore running updates).
& very few do so.
I think you'd be surprised.
(assuming you do web development or some such)
Not since 1995, and if I did I wouldn't do it on OSX. *shiver*
there is no web server in a normal recent OSX installation.
I think you might be wrong. I'm looking at a Mavericks install in front of me. Only thing installed other than the base OS is ARD.
However, I don't see this as being a major exploit for Macs (which run Web servers very rarely)
But they do. And worse, they're usually MAMP, which rarely gets updated, and there's a culture of not updating with both Apple and its userbase. I'd be surprised if Apple has a fix for this yet, and they won't provide one for older machines. Not that the users will want to update anyway...
