Apple Mac Pro Users Urged to Apply Security Updates
Apple today issued two additional security patches for users who recently bought a new Mac Pro. On Aug. 1, Apple pushed out fixes to plug 26 security holes in different versions of the Mac OS X operating system. Turns out the new Mac Pro product ships with all but two of the patches included in last week's patch bundle, and Apple is re-releasing those updates for Mac Pro users to download and install.
From the Apple advisory: "The new Mac Pro product ships with Mac OS X v10.4.7 Build 8K1079. Also, the existing Xserve hardware is now shipping with ... Build 8K1079. The fixes provided in Security Update 2006-004 (August 1 release) are contained in Build 8K1079, with the exception of the ones listed below for ImageIO and OpenSSH. The fixes for these issues were not fully tested in time for the manufacturing of the Mac Pro, and are being provided via this security update. This update is a proper subset of the full Security Update 2006-004 released on August 1. Existing systems that have already applied Security Update 2006-004 (Aug 1 release) do not need to install this update."
