August 1st, 2008 . by DarkFiber Consulting

Apple has released Security Update 2008-005 to address multiple vulnerabilities that affect a number of applications. These vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to conduct DNS cache poisoning attacks, execute arbitrary code, cause a denial-of-service condition, or access the affected system with elevated privileges. Please note that this update addresses recent issues with weaknesses in common DNS implementations; see Vulnerability Note VU#800113 for additional information.

DarkFiber Consulting encourages users to review Apple Article HT2647 and apply any necessary updates as soon as possible to help mitigate the risks.
