Apple Updates Fix Five Flaws for Mac OS X

Apple today released five software updates to mend security holes in its various programs for certain computers powered by the Mac OS X operating system. This update affects systems running OS X and OS X Server versions 10.4 through 10.4.6.

OS X 10.4.7 includes fixes for at least three flaws that Apple said could let attackers execute malicious programs on a vulnerable machine. The three most serious updates apply to ClamAV anti-virus for Mac, a potenitally dangerous image viewing application flaw, as well as a glitch in "launchd" a program that manages the startup and shutdown of certain system services on OS X.

As always, Mac users can update by fetching the patches from Apple Downloads or by using the Software Update pane in "System Preferences."
