Security Update 2010-002

by Jeff Carlson

In addition to releasing Mac OS X 10.6.3 (see "Mac OS X 10.6.3 Update Delivers Range of Fixes [1]," 29 March 2010), Apple has incorporated that update's security fixes into Security Update 2010-002 [2] for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard owners. It corrects dozens of vulnerabilities related to maliciously crafted files, Web sites, and email messages, and also updates many core components (such as PHP and MySQL) to make them more robust against potential attacks. The update requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 and is available via Software Update or as a standalone download: Security Update 2010-002 (Leopard-Client) [3] (78.39 MB) and Security Update 2010-002 (Leopard-Server) [4] (361.4 MB).
