Apple released the patch for that security issue today. I'm downloading right now.

I have OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion on my 13-inch mid-June 2012 MacBook Pro. I want to update it to OS X 10.11.x El Capitan, the last version of OS X to not have Siri installed. I'm not interested in installing the latest version (OS X 10.13 High Sierra) because it's buggy as hell. Does anyone know where I can get El Capitan?

...and seven months later, it's done :)

Been putting it off and putting it off, but today I said, fuck it, let me do this. Backed up everything three times, including a Carbon Copy Cloner copy on two external drives, made a backup USB installer, and let 'er rip. Still getting used to the slight change in Finder (who asked for those stupid colored "Tags"? how come I can't scroll across to the left to get back up one or more folders in the hierarchy as easily as I used to?) but El Cap's looking mighty fine. I think I like it.
