Apple sprays for worms

In my inbox today I had an email from Apple detailing over 80 vulnerabilities plugged in their latest OS update - OSX 10.6.3. Included in the details are the people who reported the various vulnerabilities. It fixes everything from a bug that allows a Mac to be hijacked when a user performs a spell check to the Apache web server built into OS X. This is a large update, and it really covers a lot of stuff. If you want to learn more, you can check out Apple's page on it.

Apple also released a security update for Leopard (10.5).

If you have a Mac running OS X Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) you can get the updates through Software Update (either automatically or under the Apple menu) or the Apple download page.
