Apple today patched 92 vulnerabilities, a third of them critical, in a
record update to its Leopard and Snow Leopard operating systems.
Security Update 2010-002 plugged 92 holes in the client and server
editions of Mac OS X 10.5 and Mac OS X 10.6, breaking a record that has
stood since March 2008. The update dwarfed any released last year, when
Apple's largest patched 67 vulnerabilities.
"The sheer number, it's almost so daunting that you don't even want to
look," said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle
Today's security roll-up fixed flaws in 42 different applications or
operating system components in Mac OS X, from AppKit and Application
Firewall to unzip and X11, the Mac's version of the X Window System.
