Security Update 2008-006 Patches Long List of Tiger Issues

Apple released Security Update 2008-006 for Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Mac OS X Server 10.4.11 Monday evening. The update addressed issues with fonts, Directory Services, the Finder, graphics, and more.

The update also addressed an issue where someone with access to the login screen could change a useris password, patched an X11 hole that could lead to unauthorized session control, fixed a problem that could allow a maliciously crafted PICT image to lead to arbitrary code execution, and corrected an issue where a local user could gain access to the PPP password.

Security Update 2008-006 requires Mac OS X 10.4.11, and the same security patches are also included in Appleis Mac OS X 10.5.5 update. The update is free and available via Appleis Software update application, or as a downloadable installer at the Apple Support Web site.
