Apple pushes out Blue Monday patch batch

Tell me now how do I feel?

New hybrid storage solutions

Apple pushed out a major update to its Mac OS X operating system on Monday.

Mac OS X 10.6.2 addresses 58 security flaws, some of which might lend themselves towards taking over vulnerable systems, as explained here. Flaws in Apache Portable Runtime, CoreGraphics, Dictionary, Disk Images, Help Viewer, and other applications pose code execution risks. Both server and client versions of the software need protecting against critical flaws.

The update is also designed to fix a raft of compatibility and stability bugs.

Two major flaws tackled by the update include sluggish video playback on some systems and data loss issues involving guest accounts.

Apple also published a security update for Mac OS X 10.5.8 users who have not yet upgraded to the latest version of Apple's operating system software. ®
