Re: Congratulations on repeating exploits before they can be fixed

Considering the "fix" is to adopt a beta and not a public patch, your logic is flawed.

Flawed logic is Apple not fixing the production version. Sure it's possible they just found out about it and El Capitan just happened to be immune but it's also possible that fixing Yosemite would be too costly so they aren't going to bother. Either way, it's better if the user is aware of it since the crims have known for weeks.
