Apple Updates Java, Backdates Flash
Apple Thursday shipped an update to plug a slew of critical security holes in its version of Java for Leopard systems (OS X 10.5). In other Apple patch news, it appears those who have updated to the latest version of OS X -- 10.6/Snow Leopard -- received an insecure version of the Adobe Flash player.
The Java update brings Mac's version of Java to 10.5 Update 5, and fixes at least 16 security flaws in the program. Users can grab the patch through Software Update or directly from Apple Software Downloads.
Mac users who have upgraded to Snow Leopard should be aware that the current version of the installation disc comes with an outdated version of Flash -- version 10.0.23.1. Snow Leopard users can upgrade to the latest version -- 10.0.32.18 -- by visiting the Flash Player Download Center.
