Apple Posts Security Update 2008-003 for Pre-10.5.3 Systems

| News

Apple has posted Security Update 2008-003 for pre-10.5.3 systems. The updates are already folded into the OS X Leopard Update 10.5.3 released earlier on Wednesday, so users who have applied the 10.5.3 update need not apply the Security Update 2008-003.

The Security Update 2008-003 is applicable to Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X 10.5 to 10.5.2. It is available at Appleis download page. A history of Appleis security fixes is found in KB article # HT1222.

The update varies in size by machine type and OS client or server and is between 72 and 118 MB.

The details of the security items fixed are as follows:

AFP Server
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-1027
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11,

Impact:  Files that are not designated for sharing may be accessed
remotely
Description:  AFP Server did not check that a file or directory to be
served was inside a folder designated for sharing. A connected user
or guest may access any files or folders for which they have
