Apple has released OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 update for OS X Mavericks running machine in the public. The update focuses on the critical SSL bug that goes public a few days ago. Apple has been already criticised for not fixing the critical SSL security issue on both iOS and OS X devices.
The latest OS X 10.9.2 update also brings couple of new features and fixes to known issues and bugs in the OS X Mavericks running Mac machines. Apple has introduced FaceTime Audio calls in OS X 10.9.2 update, and an option for users to block individual iMessages on Mac running machines. In the past, we have seen people complaining Apple on not providing a way to block iMessages on the Mac OS systems.

The FaceTime Audio calling feature is huge for many, as it boosts Apple eco-system among the iOS device owners.

The update is available to download via Mac App Store, and can be downloaded as single bundle for users who have to install the same update on numerous OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 running machines.
