First Software Update for Apple Watch Includes Security Fixes

For those of you who are Apple Watch early adopters, you are bound to have notice some small and some not so small problems with your new watch. Apple has been quick to address these problems and security flaws and has released Watch OS 1.01 earlier this week to improve performance and patch vulnerabilities.

Watch OS 1.0.1, released Tuesday, brings several performance improvements and support for additional languages, but it also fixes 13 vulnerabilities that could enable arbitrary code execution, information disclosure, denial of service, traffic hijacking, privilege escalation and other attacks.
