Info/Downloads for OS X 10.11.5 Updater, Yosemite/Mavericks Security Update 2016-003
(OS X 10.11.5 includes Safari 9.1.1, Mavericks/Yosemite via software update.)
(from "About" article below. Security fixes listed in separate doc.)
"The OS X El Capitan v10.11.5 Update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac, and is recommended for all users.
This update includes the following enterprise changes:

  • Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set allowSpotlightInternetResults to False would cause Spotlight to use large amounts of CPU time.

  • Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set ShutDownDisabledWhileLoggedIn to True would have no effect.

  • Fixes an issue where only a single NetBoot image would appear in the Startup Disk pane of System Preferences, even if multiple NetBoot images were configured on the server."

    Downloads of Security Update 2016-003 for OS X Mavericks and Yosemite:

    FYI: Users of Nvidia's web drivers know that new OS X updates (versions or build numbers) require updated Nvidia graphics drivers. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.) They usually appear first in Nvidia's driver prefs update check.

    Nvidia Driver Updates: See May 17th/18th news page for Nvidia driver and CUDA updates for OS X 10.11.5 and the new build numbers of OS X 10.10.5/10.9.5 with Security Update 2016-003 installed.

    With another multi-OS update release, update servers may be swamped for awhile. For OS X I'd use D/L updaters (combo is an old tip). You can also check the Apple forums for early feedback/problems. (Granted that's like Apple's ER, but with only volunteer help.)

    iTunes 12.4 Release Notes and Download:
    Available via software update or full download here. (See system requirements on linked page, varies by feature.) Here's info from the iTunes 12.4 release notes

    "Now enjoy all of your music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and more in a simpler design.

    Navigation. Now you can use Back and Forward buttons as you navigate between your Library, Apple Music, iTunes Store, and more.

    Media Picker. Easily switch between Music, Movies, TV shows, and more - and Edit to choose just the items you want.

    Library and Playlists. Use Sidebar to view your Library in new ways. Drag and drop songs to easily add them to Playlists. And Edit Sidebar to show only your favorite views.

    Menus. Menus in iTunes are now simpler and easier to use. Use the View menu to customize your Library or try context menus to act on specific items."

    (The windows version of iTunes 12.4 includes an installer related security fix.)
