Mac OS X Secunia said there are potential vulnerabilities in the Mac OS X operating system, first noticed by Tom Ferris. The firm described the holes as 'highly critical', meaning that systems could be compromised if crooks dive in. Secunia said the potential holes are in version 10.4.6, but other versions might be affected too.

People shouldn't get so worked up about this though. It is virtually impossible to create 100% secure code. What matters is Apple's reaction time in fixing known vulnerabilities.

According to the discoverers of the vulnerabities, Apple was notified of
http://www.security-protocols.com/sp-x25-advisory.php
and
http://www.security-protocols.com/sp-x26-advisory.php
in January and February. The remaining four advisories do not list the notificaton dates.
