For those of you on a mac just cruising around this “information super-highway,” or, “information express… way” please note that Apple hath released an update for Tiger & Panther. It isn’t as big as the last update, but still suggested by the mothership. Here is the link, and of course, you can always click on the little blue apple up and to the left.
From Macnn, ” Apple today issued a security update for Mac OS X 10.3.9 Panther Client and Server as well as Mac OS X 10.4.9 Tiger Client and Server, fixing numerous security holes in both systems. The update includes fixes related to Alias Manager, BIND, CoreGraphics, crontabs, fetchmail, file, iChat, mDNSResponder, PPP, ruby, screen, texinfo, and VPN. Specific vulnerabilities include the potential for attackers to mislead users into opening a substituted file, multiple holes in BIND, arbitrary code execution from opening a maliciously crafted PDF document, and more.
