Apple has begun distributing
a new security update
which shores up the security of both client and server systems running Mac OS X v10.2.6.
According to Apple, the new update changes the way new account security is handled slightly: A “disabled” password is added to a new account created by the Workgroup Managers until that account is saved for the first time. In this way, the new account can’t be accessed by an unauthorized individual.
The 1MB download is available from Apple’s Web site.
