Apple Patches 15 Security Flaws

Apple Computer on Friday issued a bundle of updates to fix at least 15 different security holes in its Mac OS X software applications.

Mac OS X v10.4.8 and Security Update 2006-006 corrects flaws in OS X Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X Server v10.3.9, Mac OS X v10.4 through Mac OS X v10.4.7, and Mac OS X Server v10.4 through Mac OS X Server v10.4.7.

Apple says the Software Update utility "will present the update that applies to your system configuration. Only one is needed, either Mac OS X v10.4.8 or Security Update 2006-006," available from Apple Downloads.

The updates include fixes for several remotely-exploitable flaws, including four bugs in the Mac version of Adobe's Flash player, as well as some that could be exploited just by viewing a maliciously crafted image file or visiting a nasty Web site.
