Apple Brings GateKeeper to Lion with OS X 10.7.5

Apple Brings GateKeeper to Lion with OS X 10.7.5

Among Apple’s long list of updates and new releases today, including iOS 6 and OS X 10.8.2, is a new update to OS X Lion: OS X 10.7.5! The update brings the usual bug fixes and stability improvements – but Apple also brought one of Mountain Lion’s new features to Lion with this update: Gatekeeper.

Gatekeeper is a security feature that allows users to limit what types of apps can be installed on their Macs. Considering its security implications, it’s pretty unsurprising that Apple would bring the feature to Lion rather than requiring users to update.

From Apple:

The 10.7.5 update is recommended for all OS X Lion users and includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac. It also includes Gatekeeper, a new security feature that helps you keep your Mac safe from malicious software by giving you more control over what apps are installed on your Mac. 

The 10.7.5 update also includes fixes that: 

– Resolve an issue where icons in Launchpad may get rearranged after a restart 
– Improve Wi-Fi reliability for iMac (Late 2009 and newer) 
– Resolve an issue using Spotlight to search an SMB server 
– Improve compatibility connecting to Active Directory servers

The update is available through Software Update on Macs running OS X Lion, and direct links to the update on Apple’s servers can be found below:
