Sparkle Updater Issue Fixed: Action Required for Mac Users
February 10, 2016 | Vas Vasiliadis
Recently, a new vulnerability was discovered in the Sparkle Updater framework on Mac OS, that is used by Globus Connect Personal to check for, and install, updates. All Mac users who have Globus Connect Personal installed should immediately update to the latest version so they are no longer vulnerable.
Download the latest update (version 2.2.2) via 'Check For Updates...' in the Globus Connect Personal menu.
