C|Net News.com is reporting that Apple has released fixes for 10 "critical" flaws in the Macintosh OS X operating system. While no exploits for the flaws were reported, both Symantec and the French Security Incident Response team have said the vulnerabilities were serious and the need to patch them was urgent.
While comment from Apple was unavailable, support pages were updated accordingly. The flaws exposed affected machines to remote attacks using arbitrary commands and e-mail interception. The French Security Incident Response team even warned of possible Denial-Of-Service attacks. This is however only the fourth time this year that Apple has released security fixes for Mac OS X.
