Apple has released Security Update 2012-004 for both Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard and 10.6.8 Snow Leopard Server, both of which address the same issues. Among the list of fixes, the releases update Apache 2.2.22 to prevent a vulnerability that could lead to denial of service, add a revoked TrustWave root certificate to a list of untrusted certificates, and update the DirectoryService Proxy to prevent an arbitrary execution of code due to an overflow buffer vulnerability. There’s no reason to update instantly; we recommend waiting a week or so and seeing if online reports note any distressing side effects. Note that Apple incorrectly lists the file size of the 10.6.8 Snow Leopard Security Update as 2.36 MB — it is actually 257 MB. (Free, 257/276 MB)
Opening a Folder from the Dock
Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Special thanks to Michael Sherman, David Askins, Harlyn Thompson, and
Charles Spalding for their generous support!
Spam Sieve (love 'em to death) whipped out a beta fix.
No fix for Letterbox, which was only updated for 10.6.7 anyway.
BUT see Apple discussion for other fixes:
UPDATE: Spam Sieve also posted it's own comments about restoring the mail plugin:
Does Apple even care?
