Apple releases security updates for Tiger, Leopard systems

updated 06:30 pm EDT, Thu September 10, 2009

Long list of vulnerabilities addressed

Apple on Thursday released security updates for Mac OS X v10.5.8 and v10.4.11, including the standard and Server editions. The updates resolve a variety of security vulnerabilities relating to maliciously crafted alias files, resource forks, image files, PDFs, scheduler requests and PixarFilm files, among others.

ClamAV has been updated to v0.95.2, which addresses a number of security issues with the previous version, while PHP has been update from v5.2.8 to v5.2.10. Internet-specific security patches involve changes to CoreGraphics, Uniform Type Identifiers, Wiki Server characters and handling of .fileloc files.

Apple also integrates the latest version of Adobe's Flash Player plug-in. The company was criticized for including an older version of the plug-in with Snow Leopard, although the issue has been addressed with the release of OS X 10.6.1.

The Leopard and Tiger security updates can be downloaded from Apple's support page or via Software Update. File sizes range from 77MB to 206MB depending on the specific version.

    Don't be daft

    What, Microsoft would get killed for actually releasing a bug fix instead of waiting until there was a widely distributed exploit in the field?

    Microsoft gets routinely criticized for holding off releasing fixes. To have them jump the gun would be refreshing.
