Security update for Mac OS X – Macitynet.it
Apple released a new Mac OS X security update late last week.
The update called (Security Update 2002-11-21), repairs some holes that can potentially lead to problems if the system is attacked by hackers.
In particular, the patch intervenes on BIND, the package that manages domain servers and client libraries introduced by the ISC (Internet Software Consortium) and which is distributed with Mac Mac X and Mac OS X Server. The latest version, 8.3.4 presents some vulnerabilities that could allow the interruption by a remote user of DNS services.
In the margin, Apple notes that the BIND activity is not activated by default, n in Mac OS X n in Mac OS X Server.
At the time of writing, the update available only via Software Update.
