Apple’s Lauded OS X Showing Bad Spots

Apple fixes 15 flaws in Mac OS X

Apple Computer released an update to its Mac OS X operating system on Tuesday to fix 15 security issues in the software.

Many of the problems are flaws in the operating system’s underlying open-source software, including a critical flaw in the Kerberos authentication system–software that can act as a gatekeeper for computer networks. The patch is available for Mac OS X 10.3.5 and Mac OS X 10.3.4, and also fixes issues in Mac OS X 10.2, known as “Jaguar.”


Apple’s OS X is not a ‘White Tower’ any longer, as most of us know. It’s starting to collect its share of patches, fixes, and other security problems.
