Apple Plugs 7 Security Holes in Tiger

Apple on Friday released Security Update 2005-008 to correct seven flaws in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, along with three others affecting version 10.3. Among the fixes is a patch for Mail that prevents the exposure of encrypted content, and update to Safari that prevents cross-site scripting attacks.

Some internal Mac OS X services have also been fixed, including malloc, ImageIO, SecurityAgent and securityd. The update additionally brings enhancements to the Mac OS X login window that improve interaction with the system’s parental controls.
