Apple patches iSync flaw

Fixes a hole in tool that helps people synchronize data between a Mac and a mobile device.

Apple Computer has released a security update to fix a flaw in its iSync program, which helps Mac owners synchronize data between a Mac and a mobile device.

According to Apple, the patch fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability within an iSync helper tool called "mRouter." If left unpatched, the flaw could allow arbitrary commands to be executed, Apple said.
