Apple's Mountain Lion to offer automatic security updates
It was revealed on Monday that Apple's upcoming OS X Mountain Lion will feature an automatic security check feature that will ensure users have the most up-to-date software protection amid a growing number of Mac-targeted malware.
An update to the Mountain Lion Developer Preview shows a new automated system that runs a daily check with Apple's servers to make sure OS X 10.8 users have the most current security patches and protections against known malware and viruses.
Called "OS X Security Update Test 1.0," the automated feature will run either daily or whenever a Mac restarts and has the ability to download and install updates in the background, making the task of manually performing checks less of a necessity.
