Apple Mac OS X update includes 40 fixes

Security Update 2008-002 now available

Apple has released over 40 fixes for its Mac OS X OS in a new security update.

Among the changes in Security Update 2008-002 are a fix for Podcast Producer so it no longer sends passwords that can potentially be viewed by other local users. Apple's Preview application also got an update to fix an issue that could allow encrypted PDF files saved in Preview to be read without a password.

Most of the other issues fixed with this update involve core technologies and 'under-the-hood' components of Mac OS X. Apache, PHP, AppKit, ClamAV, CoreServices, CUPS and curl are among the components updated.

Security Update 2008-002 is available via Apple's website or from the Software Update tool in Mac OS X.
