Security Update 2008-002

Apple today unveiled Security Update 2008-002, which provides a number of fixes for several system vulnerabilities found in AFP, CUPS, AppKit, and several other system-level resources. Most of the vulnerabilities revolve around maliciously crafted URLs granting access to system-level privileges, while others allow users to bypass system security. The majority of fixes are for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Tiger Server users, while some apply to the 10.5 Leopard equivalents.

The update also fixes several Denial of Service issues, as well as application termination or unexpected restart/shutdown occurrences. Leopard and Leopard Server authenticated print queues were also addressed, as a certain exploit could lead to a malicious user discovering login information through a vulnerability in communication protocols.

    so...

    Does this mean that 10.3.9 is not affected by any of these issues, or that Apple no longer supports security issues with 10.3.9?

    These are the kind of answers a company serious about growing in the Enterprise has to have published, out front, and for everyone to see....
