Apple Issues Bundle of Security Updates

Apple today released a bundle of software updates to fix more than two-dozen security weaknesses in computers powered by its Mac OS X operating system.

Apple issued updates to address 26 distinct security issues, by my count anyway. The patches fix problems in a slew of OS X programs, including several flaws that could be exploited by attackers just by getting the user to load a specially crafted image file in their Web browser or on the operating system.

Updates are available for Mac OS X 10.3.9, Mac OS X Server 10.3.9, Mac OS X 10.4.7 and Mac OS X Server 10.4.7. Users can update via the Apple Software Updates feature or by visiting Apple Downloads.
