Apple on Tuesday released an Security Update 2008-002 for Mac OS X. The update contains over 40 fixes for various components of the operating system.
Among the changes, a fix for Podcast Producer so it no longer sends passwords that can potentially be viewed by other local users has been implemented. Apple’s Preview application also got an update to fix an issue that could allow encrypted PDF files saved in Preview to be read without a password.
Most of the other issues fixed with this update involve core technologies and “under-the-hood” components of Mac OS X. Apache, PHP, AppKit, ClamAV, CoreServices, CUPS and curl are among the components updated.
Security Update 2008-002 is available via Apple’s Web site or from the Software Update tool in Mac OS X.
