    Bah!

    Gotta love that security vulnerability warning.

    The problem is that "Internet Connect.app" creates the file "/tmp/ppp.log" in an insecure manner, which can be exploited via symlink attacks.

    No explanation of what an 'insecure manner' is, nor any mention of what a symlink attack is (hey, a hyperlink to a glossary is all we want, you boneheads).

    The vulnerability has been reported in Mac OS X 10.3.4 with "Internet Connect.app" version 1.3. Prior versions may also be affected.

    Reported, but was it verified? And couldn't anyone say "Hmmm, let's check out 10.2?
