Apples Fixes New Flawed Security Patch

August 19th 2005

apple fixes flawed operating patch for tiger operating system OS X

Apple OS X patch fixed

The new security patch for the Apple Computer Tiger Operating System prevented 64-bit applications from running.  A corrected patch can be found at Apples website.  Some of the newer high-end applications have been compiled for 64 bit operation.  Standard 32 bit programs continued to work.

The new update, 2005-007 version 1.1, will replace the original patch issued on Monday.  The original patch omitted the 64 bit version of LibSystem.  The original patch was also updated to correct the flaw.

Mondays update was the largest security update in Apples history.  It corrected more than 40 operating system bugs in the Mac OS.  Most experts agree that with each new update the Tiger OS is becoming more stable and secure.

 

The 20.6mb server patch enhances secutiry for: apache2; AppKit; blojsom; BlueTooth; CoreFoundation; cups; Directory Services; HIToolBox; Kerberos; loginwindow; Mail; OpenSSL; QuartzComposerScreenSaver; Security Interface; servermgrd; servermgr_ipfilter; SquirrelMail; Safari; X11; and, zlib.

The 18.5mb client patch enhances secutiry for: AppKit; blojsom; BlueTooth; CoreFoundation; cups; Directory Services; HIToolBox; Kerberos; loginwindow; Mail; OpenSSL; QuartzComposerScreenSaver; Security Interface; servermgrd; servermgr_ipfilter; SquirrelMail; Safari; X11; and, zlib.

According to eweek, Wolfram Research Inc. was the first to report the flaw.  As a result of the flaw in the security update, the 64-bit Mathematica 5.2 software would not run on any hardware based on the G5 processor that has Version 1.0 of the update installed on it, according to Wolfram.

Wolfram immediately emailed customers , "If you have been affected, then Mathematica 5.2 will generate a MathLink error when you try to do any computation with it. (If you run MathKernel directly from the command line, it will crash at startup.)"
