Apple Releases Security Update 2008-002

Apple on Tuesday released an Security Update 2008-002 for Mac OS X. The update contains over 40 fixes for various components of the operating system. This document describes Security Update 2008-002, which can be downloaded and installed via Software Update preferences, or from Apple Downloads.

Among the changes, a fix for Podcast Producer so it no longer sends passwords that can potentially be viewed by other local users has been implemented. 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 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.
