Apple delivers jumbo security update for Mac OS X

Apple Inc. today patched 67 vulnerabilities in Mac OS X, including two bugs that researchers used in March to walk off with $5,000 each in a noted hacking contest.

Tuesday’s update was the largest for Apple since March 2008. “For Apple, updates this size are now becoming the norm,” said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Network Security.

Security Update 2009-002, which was bundled with the upgrade for Leopard to Mac OS X 10.5.7, and available separately for users of Tiger, plugged holes in BIND, CoreGraphics, Disk Images, Flash Player, iChat, Kerberos, QuickDraw Manager, Safari, Spotlight, WebKit and other bits and pieces of the operating system.
