Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2006-003 Released -- Apple posted the latest security update last week, which patches vulnerabilities in many major Mac OS X components, such as Finder, Mail, Preview, Safari, CoreGraphics, AppKit, Keychain, and Launch Services. Several fixes prevent malformed image files from causing crashes or executing code, while others focus on specific security holes. The update is available via Software Update, or as separate downloads for Mac OS X 10.4.6 Client (in a 12 MB PowerPC or 23.5 MB Intel version) and Server (a 13.1 MB download); or Mac OS X 10.3.9 Client (a 28 MB download) and Server (a 41.6 MB update).
