Apple Releases New MacOSX Security Update

Apple released Security Update 2002-11-21 for MacOSX 10.2 Jaguar (via the Software Update utility). It fixes potential vulnerabilities introduced in BIND, the domain server and client library software package from ISC, that is shipped with OS X and OSX Server. BIND version 8.3.4 addresses the recently-discovered potential vulnerabilities where an unauthorized person may disrupt the normal operation of the DNS name service. BIND is not activated by default on OSX.In the meantime, Apple seeded 10.2.3 beta update to developers. Its documentation says that major updates have been made to graphics, printing, and AppleScript, with other updates to video, Core Audio, High Level Toolbox, Carbon, FireWire, and USB.

The 10.2.3 update is expected to be released sometime in December.
