Apple Patches Mac OS X Security Holes

Apple has issued a security update for Mac OS X to fix up to 15 different vulnerabilities. Those fixes are available at http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/

Many of them solve problems that may cause different security problems, such as denial of services, arbitrary code execution, arbitrary files overwriting with "root" privileges, buffer overflows, etc.

The patches are applied to several locations, including the PHP Apache module, IPSecservices, WebKit and Safari.

We suggest to readers to update their systems, but taking the correct protective backup measures to avoid malfunctions that could cause an incorrect patch application.

The full information disclosed by Apple is available at http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303382
