Here is another good reason to update to 10.10.3



Swedish hacker Emil Kvarnhammar has reported a since-fixed four-year-old local root 'backdoor' OS X that allows remote attackers to increase the damage of their hacks.

Kvarnhammar says the unpublished API, which he dubs a backdoor, grants root access to local users on unpatched boxes. The flaw is fixed in Apple's patch run this week.
