Security Update 2004-01-26

Apple today posted Security Update 2004-01-26, which it says delivers a number of security enhancements for Apache 1.3, Classic, Mail, Safari, and Windows File Sharing. Additionally, Security Update 2003-12-19 has been incorporated into this security update.

Update: The enhancements in this release are as follows:



  • AFP Server: Improves AFP over the 2003-12-19 security update.


  • Apache 1.3: Fixes CAN-2003-0542, a buffer overflow in the mod_alias and mod_rewrite modules of the Apache webserver.


  • Apache 2: Fixes CAN-2003-0542 and CAN-2003-0789 by updating Apache 2.0.47 to 2.0.48. Installed only on Server systems.


  • Classic: Fixes CAN-2004-0089 to improve the handling of environment variables.


  • Mail: Fixes CAN-2004-0085 and CAN-2004-0086 to deliver security enhancements to Apple's mail application.


  • Safari: Fixes CAN-2004-0092 by delivering security enhancements to the Safari Web browser.


  • System Configuration: Fixes CAN-2004-0087 and CAN-2004-0088 where the SystemConfiguration subsystem allowed remote non-admin users to change network setting and make configuration changes to configd.


  • Windows File Sharing: Fixes CAN-2004-0090 where Windows file sharing did not shutdown properly.

      Re: Just installed...

      Damn! You beat me to it! :)

      Anyone know if this mod to "Windows file sharing" fixes the abysmal network "browsing" in 10.3?

      Thank you, Apple!

      Yep, my PB1Gig is definitely snappier than before. I don't know what they've done to it but now applications launch within a hiccup.

      Prior to this update, it would take ca. 30 seconds to launch the System Preference & I was going to throw away the com.apple.sysPref... the plist thang, if not all the Preference contents. Thanks again, Apple!

      re: shutup

      Gosh, sorry we didn't mean to anger you! The last thing you should have to put up with on a Mac discussion and news channel on the internet is, well, news about the Mac. errr. yeah. right.

      Maybe instead of us worrying about angering you, maybe you should just go back to torturing small animals and practicing to be the future serial killer we all believe you could be someday. Remember! set your sights high, and you will suck-seed.

      Pathetic sad loser.

      You must have been the shortest thought your father ever prematurely had.

      Buh-bye-now

      Safari

      Some how Safari seems happier (see I didn't say snappier™).
      Up to now I've used both Firebird and Safari at the same time because Safari have been such a dog. Parhaps I can go back to Safari fulltime after this update, if they have bothered to fix the memory leak that is. Whatever..

      Any problems?

      Any problems with Mac OS X Server? These Apple updates make me nervous after that 10.2.8 debacle.

      RIPE.

      this update is just RIPE to make my system 10-15% snappier.

      Fan issues

      My PB 17" is definitely a bit quicker but the fan is on about 85% of the time now. Getting annoying. Anyone else having this issue since the update?
