Apple Update Fixes 13 Security Flaws
Apple has issued an update that patches several security flaws in its Mac OS X operating system, including a hole that a security researcher last week showed could be used by attackers to install malware on affected systems through Safari, the default Web browser on Macs.
The update fixes at least 13 OS X security vulnerabiltiies, including four distinct Safari flaws that a malicious Web site or RSS feed could use to install programs on a visiting machine. Among the other problems addressed in this update is an issue with the default OS X e-mail program, which Apple said in some cases can fail to warn users about which e-mail attachment file types are potentially unsafe to open.
