Mac OS X Flaw Puts Macs at Risk

A flaw in the way Mac OS X handles disk image structures could allow an attacker to compromise an Apple computer. Recently-published code is only a proof-of-concept at this point, but could easily be exploited remotely such as through the Safari web browser. One Safari user confirmed the vulnerability in 10.4.8. It is listed as a highly critical vulnerability on Secunia's site. If you use a Mac, be safe! (Sources: CNET, Secunia)
