Rolling the security changes in Mac OS X 10.7.3 Lion back into 10.6 Snow Leopard, Apple has released Security Update 2012-001 and Security Update 2012-001 Server, both exclusively for Snow Leopard. The fixes relate to vulnerabilities in Apache, ATS, ColorSync, CoreAudio, CoreMedia, CoreText, curl, dovecot, filecmds, ImageIO, libresolv, libsecurity, OpenGL, PHP, QuickTime, SquirrelMail, Subversion, Tomcat, and X11. Plus, Mac OS X will no longer trust SSL/TLS certificates issued by DigiCert Malaysia, which has issued certificates with weak keys that it cannot revoke. The 1.0 versions of these releases caused crashes with PowerPC-based programs running under Rosetta; the 1.1 releases resolved those problems.
