Apple Plugs 18 Security Holes in Tiger

Apple on Tuesday released its seventh security update this year for Mac OS X, correcting 22 vulnerabilities in total – 18 of which affect the company’s latest 10.4.8 version of Tiger. Among the list of fixes is a buffer overflow in the Airport drivers, and four updates to the system’s Security Framework.

Other patches in the 2006-007 update include a fix to Finder and the HTML engine built into Mac OS X. Apple additionally corrected a problem with Windows file sharing, which enabled an attacker to make an unlimited number of connections and could lead to memory exhaustion. Mac OS X users can download the security update via the operating system’s Software Update feature.
