Apple Support Articles on mDNSResponder, Flash Updates: (from Tuesday)
  • Security update for mDNSResponder
    "Current versions of Apple products use the updated version of Bonjour.
    For previous versions, Apple has issued a security update.

    Which Apple platforms are affected?

      OS X:
    • Versions prior to OS X El Capitan v10.11.1
    • Versions prior to OS X Yosemite v10.10.5 with Security Update 2015-004 Yosemite
    • Versions prior to OS X Mavericks v10.9.5 with Security Update 2015-007 Mavericks

    • iOS versions prior to iOS 9.1

    • watchOS versions prior to watchOS 2.1

    • AirPort Base Station Firmware versions prior to 7.7.7 and 7.6.7"

    (Also notes to check with vendors of any products you use that may be affected.)

    Regarding the "for previous versions Apple has issued a security update", I assume they are just saying a fix was already in the OS versions/security updates later than the "Prior to" list above - not that there are any new updates being released for older OS versions.
    (Articles about security fixes in some past updates have been recently revised.)
    There's been no security updates for OS X v10.8.x and earlier for some time now.
    Once El Capitan was released, 10.9.x is the oldest still getting security updates.
    (There was a Mac App Store/Certificate Update for Snow Leopard on Jan. 27th, 2016.)

  • Apple security updates listing added a June 20th About security content of AirPort Base Firmware Update 7.6.7 and 7.7.7. (The updates released May 24th included the fix but no doc about it posted then.)

  • Adobe Flash Player updates available for OS X on June 20, 2016
    (A Flash update noted in June 16th news)

Apple also revised several past docs about Security fixes in some previous OS updates.
