Apple on Friday released a new security update for Mac OS X.
According to Apple, Security Update 2002-11-21 fixes potential vulnerabilities introduced in BIND, the domain server and client library software package from Internet Software Consortium (ISC), that is shipped with Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server. BIND version 8.3.4 addresses the recently discovered potential vulnerabilities where an unauthorized person may disrupt the normal operation of the DNS name service.
Apple does note however, that BIND is not activated by default on Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server.
The update is available from the Software Update control panel in Mac OS X 10.2.
