Infocon Green and apple updates



The Sans institute (incidents.org) has returned to infocon green. Explaining that there are no fundamentally new variations on the exploits that were circulating and the situation is fairly static. (No big moves in infected machines/port scanning activity.) Also, they note that Apple has released several updates. They effect 10.3.9 and 10.4.2 The updates can be found at Apple support.



A reminder should be tagged with this that no operating system is perfect Apple/Windows/Linux/BSD/etc./etc./ Keep up with security updates of whatever system you use.

Updated at 3PM EDT as I noticed
The security fix is discussing this as well

Further information and details are available in This document from Apple and at this Secunia advisory. It looks as though some of these are potentially VERY nasty. If you use one of the affected systems please patch.
