    Out of cycle Apple security update for 10.6

    This is rare for Apple, could be a sign that more folks actually are writing code to exploit Apple's OS now.

    About the security content of Mac OS X v10.6.6

    Mac OS X v10.6.6

    PackageKit

    CVE-ID: CVE-2010-4013

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.6 through v10.6.5, Mac OS X Server v10.6 through v10.6.5

    Impact: A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

    Description: A format string issue exists in PackageKit's handling of distribution scripts. A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution when Software Update checks for new updates. This issue is addressed through improved validation of distribution scripts. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.6. Credit to Aaron Sigel of vtty.com for reporting this issue.

    not surprised - the amount of Mac's with virus'/malware that i see have drastically increased over the past year.

    Whats unfortunate is the end user's in most cases still think their machines are impervious to malware.
