Exploit in the wild for Apple vulnerability

A couple days ago there was a release of Mac OS X 10.4.7 which addressed several security flaws. There is now an exploit published for one of these vulnerabilities. The attacker using this exploit could gain remote root (administrator) access to the machine. So, don’t delay any further on patching. No system is a fortress if the administrator doesn’t keep up with security updates……

The Security Fix also has mention of this. There’s also speculation of this being used in a mass mailing attempt to snag Mac users – so…. keep an eye out and be cautious. (AND install updates!!!)
