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.
