Month of Apple Bugs scheme yields first fixes

Full disclosure

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A former Apple engineer is leading efforts to produce unofficial fixes unearthed by the Month of Apple Bugs project, resulting in the first three solutions.

Landon Fuller, a Darwin developer and former engineer in Apple's BSD Technology Group, is providing runtime fixes ahead of official patches from Apple. Fixes for the first three bugs - involving QuickTime and VLC media player - can be found via Fuller's site here, with further patches promised over the course of what promises to be a busy month.

The Month of Apple Bugs project is the brainchild of Kevin Finisterre and the people behind November's Month of Kernel Bugs (MoKB) project. The project aims to release details of previously undisclosed Mac OS X or Apple application security bugs every day in January, without first notifying Apple, in order to dispel the perception that Apple systems are free of the security bugs that have long plagued Windows users. ®
