Luckily, Apple can push a button and offer an update to all recent OSX versions.Well, only if you have recent enough hardware that can even support a recent OS... ;-) I have some older Mac towers in my office that haven't seen an update in years. Those machines are still quite functional, but they will continue to be vulnerable to this.
This is something Microsoft will soon be able to do too, but only with Windows 10.Microsoft has had automatic updates as the recommended setting for quite a while now (since XP ~2001). Not everyone took advantage of that though. Regardless, I can still get Microsoft updates for OSs dating back to Vista regardless of the hardware.

You should really not be using an OS that does not get updates. It will be insecure ever without attacks like this. Your hardware can support a recent OS - just not recent MacOS.... if you need to use MacOS, reuse the hardware for a different purpose or give it away.
