Security Update 2002-08-02 Closes Unix Holes

Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2002-08-02 Closes Unix Holes -- Apple has released yet another security update for Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server, fixing vulnerabilities in OpenSSL, the Apache mod_ssl module, and the Sun RPC XDR decoder. Most Mac OS X users wouldn't have been vulnerable to these problems anyway, since they must be enabled manually in Mac OS X (though not Mac OS X Server). Even though the risk is low, it's still important to install this update, either via Software Update or manually from the download link below (4.8 MB). [ACE]
