Apple plugs four security holes

Apple issued four security updates Thursday to fix flaws in Mac OS X and iChat identified by the Month of Apple Bugs project. Two of the flaws could allow an attacker to execute code on an unpatched system, Apple said. Patches are now available on Apple's Web site or through the Software Update selection under the Apple menu on a Mac.

Apple noted that proof-of-concepts for the flaws were posted on the Month of Apple Bugs Web site. But it doesn't appear that attack code has surfaced using the concepts outlined by the project. Apple has fixed several flaws identified during the course of January by the project, but some remain open. Apple plugs four security holes | Tech News on ZDNet
