Apple posts Security Update 2011-006, iCloud Control Panel

Releases complete epic series of updates

Apple concluded a series of major software updates yesterday by releasing Security Update 2011-006 for Snow Leopard and the iCloud Control Panel for Windows. The former mostly reflects security issues addressed by OS X 10.7.2, solving problems linked to: Apache, ATS, BIND, graphics, Jabber, Mailman, MediaKit, CoreFoundation, CoreMedia, PHP, Python, the application firewall, root certificates, HTTPS servers, QuickTime, Tomcat, X11, the App Store's help content, and finally the web server. The last fix is a part of the Server release of the Security Update.

The iCloud Control Panel replaces the MobileMe Control Panel, and is required for some iCloud functions in Windows. Specifically the software enables Photo Stream, Contacts and Calendars functions, although the Calendars support also requires the use of Outlook 2007 or better. The Control Panel as a whole will run only on Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7.

    Yes, but have they fixed the LDAP password security issue?

    yay

    It looks like they fixed the issue where Safari cookies in Snow Leopard 10.6.8 wouldn't be blocked. Seems to be working properly now.
