    The security package patches for software includes Adobe's Flash Player plug-in, Clam AV, MySQL and PHP. The security package also includes more serious security patches for components including Alias Manager, CarbonCore, ColorSync, CoreGraphics and ImageIO.

    It was quite expected, when Mac OS X 10.6 shipped with vulnerable older flash player.

    Some major Fixes:
    • Improves compatibility with some Sierra Wireless 3G modems
    • Addresses an issue in which some printer compatibility drivers might not appear properly in the Add Printer browser
    • Addresses an issue that might cause DVD playback to stop unexpectedly
    • Addresses an issue that might make it difficult to remove an item from the Dock
    • Resolves an issue in which the Command-Option-T keyboard shortcut would sometimes bring up the special characters menu in applications such as Mail and TextEdit
    • Addresses instances in which auto account setup in Mail might not work
    • Resolves issues when sending mail with certain SMTP servers
    • Addresses an issue in which Motion 4 could become unresponsive
    • Includes an update to Adobe Flash Player plug-in version 10.0.32.18

    Mac security guru: Snow Leopard less secure than Windows | The Windows Club

    Earlier the talk was all about Windows Security; these days it seems to be more about Mac holes!

    Finally Apple admits that every O.S can have security holes, not only Windows..

    a big step onwards

    No, I live in a wonderful world where I have no problems with security holes and my apple is big red and beautiful A wait a moment that was just a dream now it seems that my apple is also full of holes. Think I better get an OS that patches them quickly.
