Apple has updated its Xcode development environment, patching two vulnerabilities in its implementation of git.
Git is a version control system, and in March its handlers patched two flaws that exposed the software to remote code execution.
The new version of Xcode, 7.3.1, is available for El Capitain v 10.11 and later.
Apple said it updated git to version 2.7.4, patching a heap-based buffer overflow that occurred in the way it handled filenames. Belgian researcher Mattias Geniar wrote about the git flaws in March, saying that the bug had the potential to be huge because it enabled server and client side remote cod execution.
