mac os x security update Fire up Software Update, Apple has released a security update for Mac OS X. Several potential exploits are patched in the update, one of them looks similar to the PDF exploit that was used for the web based easy iPhone jailbreak that was patched with iOS 4.0.2. Who knew that Mac OS X and iOS shared some of the same vulnerabilities? Other security issues fixed involve PHP, Samba, libsecurity, CoreGraphics, ClamAV, CFNetwork, and ATS.

As usual, the security update requires a system reboot.
