3rd Apple security update
Apple today released a third security update--presumably to fix issues found in the second security update released earlier this week. Ironically, the previous update was also released to address inadequate security fixes and bugs introduced in the first update released earlier this month. Available for Mac OS X 10.4.5 Tiger on both Intel client and PPC Server/Client systems, Security Update 2006-002 v1.1 outlines the same updated components: apache_mod_php, CoreTypes, LaunchServices, Mail, rsync, and Safari, but is now labeled as v1.1. Further information is not yet available. The updates are not yet available via the Software Update. The update comes on the heels of important Mac security updates for Microsoft Excel and Adobe Flash and a new QuickTime/iTunes flaw that has yet to be addressed by Apple.
