[Micronet] Mac OS X Un/Supported OSs

robertl
All—
According to this:
https://security.berkeley.edu/faq/isp-security-notices/operating-system-unsupported

Current list of Mac OS X versions receiving Security Updates from Apple (as of Feb 1 2016):

• Mac OS X 10.10 “Yosemite”
• Mac OS X 10.11 “El Capitan”

Apple released a security update yesterday for 10.9
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201222

So does that mean that 10.9.5 is now a supported OS?

Robert

The security update you're seeing is for Safari.  I believe there were two security vulnerabilities that were identified that led ISP to the decision to remove OS 10.9 and earlier from support and I have yet to find anything saying they have been patched yet:
CVE-2015-5600
CVE-2015-1130

This is very interesting. We have several CSS supported computers still running version 10.9x Apple OS. I think there is somewhat of a disconnect in the communication with CSS. I believe that they need to do a complete inventory of supported units and upgrade where necessary. Don't you agree?

CSS IT cannot inventory all the supported units, that would take months with the personal he have, even if no one was making requests in the meantime. Departments have to inventory there own stuff.

Roy,
You may be interested to know that CSS IT has been contacting everyone that we know about who has noncompliant equipment and we have in fact been spending a lot of time helping people bring their systems into compliance. But we can't address systems we don't know about.

Re: [Micronet] Mac OS X Un/Supported OSs

Any Mac using the Berkeley Desktop image should have the ability to do a Self Service upgrade to El Capitan without needing a technician.  But I know that doesn't cover a big chunk of machines out there.

Otherwise, we're stuck going desk to desk for inventory or asking customers to self report for anything not showing in BigFix.

While this is probably true, most of our CSS users are savvy enough to do a complete system upgrade without guidance.

Re: [Micronet] Mac OS X Un/Supported OSs

Michelle Bautista
In reply to this post by Baril
H Roy,

We have been monitoring the OS X migration/upgrade situations since at least November and have taken numerous steps to mitigate this issue for our customers. All CSS IT staff are actively communicating to customers as they locate outdated machines.

We have limited insight to computers unless they are on BigFix/TEM. However, from the 700+ computers identified in December 2015 as having an outdated Mac OS, we have reduced that number to less than 400 today. We know we will not hit 0 by the April 1 date even with the computers we have enterprise management on but we are doing everything we can with the limited time and resources to get there sooner rather than later. We have also been actively working with IST-EEI and ISP to create solutions to help facilitate the migration.

Short of having an enterprise system or other methodology for locating all computers on this campus and installing the self-service button, our alternative to discovering all of these computers is unfortunately tedious and time consuming.  We will continue our efforts to help the campus manage this risk.

We plan on working with campus partners to improve the methods and technologies to facilitate large scale migrations. The customer computer is a frequent gateway to more and more security attacks. It's up to all of us to stay vigilant and to help our customers understand how they can help protect our computing environment.

Regards,
Michelle

Re: [Micronet] Mac OS X Un/Supported OSs

In reply to this post by robertl
In August of last year Apple addressed an OpenSSH vulnerability (CVE-2015-5600) with "Security Update 2015-006” (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205031). Although the update ran on both Mavericks and Yosemite, OpenSSH was only patched for 10.10.x. At that time IST was sending out SNS alerts for OS X machines that had Remote Login enabled; the solution was to disable SSH on machines earlier then 10.10, run the patch on Yosemite, or later to update to El Capitan when it was qualified. This is likely what led to security’s decision to sunset support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

While this week’s release of "Security Update 2016-002” does include some Mavericks fixes (including some for OpenSSH), CVE-2015-5600 is still not patched in OS X 10.9.5, so it can still be accurately described as an "operating system(s) with vulnerabilities that are not patched by Apple…”.

Bummer.

Thanks for that clear explanation.
So this <https://security.berkeley.edu/faq/isp-security-notices/operating-system-unsupported> article should really state that systems need that vulnerability patched?

Re: [Micronet] Mac OS X Un/Supported OSs

Ben Gross
Hello Everyone,

EEI has created a Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11.x) upgrade self service offer that will upgrade a Mac running versions as old as 10.6.8 up to OS X Yosemite to Mac OS X El Capitan. In order to have access to the offer, you must have a device that is either running a Berkeley Desktop image or a device that is managed by EEI with patching and self service enabled. You will not need administrative rights on your device to run self service offers.

If you believe you should have access to the self service upgrade offer and you find you do not, then please contact Campus Shared Services IT.

Further documentation is available at:

Mac OS X - El Capitan Upgrade Self Service

Thank you,

Thanks for that clear explanation.
So this <https://security.berkeley.edu/faq/isp-security-notices/operating-system-unsupported> article should really state that systems need that vulnerability patched?

Thanks, again

In August of last year Apple addressed an OpenSSH vulnerability (CVE-2015-5600) with "Security Update 2015-006” (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205031). Although the update ran on both Mavericks and Yosemite, OpenSSH was only patched for 10.10.x. At that time IST was sending out SNS alerts for OS X machines that had Remote Login enabled; the solution was to disable SSH on machines earlier then 10.10, run the patch on Yosemite, or later to update to El Capitan when it was qualified. This is likely what led to security’s decision to sunset support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

While this week’s release of "Security Update 2016-002” does include some Mavericks fixes (including some for OpenSSH), CVE-2015-5600 is still not patched in OS X 10.9.5, so it can still be accurately described as an "operating system(s) with vulnerabilities that are not patched by Apple…”.

Bummer.

All—
According to this:
https://security.berkeley.edu/faq/isp-security-notices/operating-system-unsupported

Current list of Mac OS X versions receiving Security Updates from Apple (as of Feb 1 2016):

• Mac OS X 10.10 “Yosemite”
• Mac OS X 10.11 “El Capitan”

Apple released a security update yesterday for 10.9
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201222

So does that mean that 10.9.5 is now a supported OS?
