According to “zdnet”, in addition to the large list of vulnerabilities fixed in iOS 8, Apple has released new versions of many other products to fix many other vulnerabilities.

iOS 8 fixed 53 vulnerabilities in earlier versions. The other new versions — OS X Mavericks 10.9.5; Safari 6.1.6, 7.0.6, 6.2 and 7.2; Xcode 6.0.1; OS X Server 2.2.3 and 3.2.1; and Apple TV 7 — fix another 53.

Many of the fixes in OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 and Security Update 2014-004 are problems with common open source programs which the average user might not use. Among these are Apache mod_php, Ruby and QT Media Foundation. But several are serious, especially the bugs in the Intel Graphics Driver, IOAcceleratorFamily and Libnotify, one of which allows a malicious application to execute arbitrary code with root privileges. This is a very critical update for Mac users. All of the bugs fixed in Apple TV were among those fixed in OS X.

Nearly all the flaws fixed in Safari 6.1.6, 6.2, 7.0.6 and 7.2 are memory corruption bugs in the WebKit browser engine which could allow remote code execution. The others are information disclosure bugs.

OS X Server 2.2.3 and 3.2.1 both fix a SQL injection bug which could allow an attacker to run arbitrary SQL queries. Version 3.2.1 also fixes a JavaScript injection bug and multiple critical bugs in PostgreSQL.
