Sophos Security Tips

For Sophos (specifically the Naked Security blog), John Zorabedian offers the article Apple users: Try these five tips for better Mac security. While advising that ‘it’s time to upgrade to Mavericks’, that isn’t actually one of the five tips. However, as is fairly clear from the comments to the article (including responses in which Sophos security guru Paul Ducklin contributes huge doses of common sense and less common expertise), Apple’s fading support for earlier OS X versions has a direct bearing on the availability of security patches and updates, so that advice is highly relevant.
