Mac OS X security udpate
Apple has released Security Update 2009-004 for systems running Mac OS X 10.5.8 and v10.4.11, including Server editions. The fix comes just a week after the company's last update which contained a longer list of corrected vulnerabilities. The current update addresses an issue relating to the Domain Naming System server. A remote attacker could potentially create a malicious update message to interrupt the BIND service.
The problem is said to affect servers which are masters for one or more zones. BIND is not enabled by default, although the issue has been corrected by properly rejecting messages containing suspicious messages.
The security update downloads are available through Apple's support page or via Software Update. File sizes range from 130MB to 204MB depending on the operating system.
