Apple Computer on Wednesday released a security update with fixes for two dozen problems, most of which affect only its latest server and client releases. The bugs lie in various parts of the operating system software and include flaws that could enable an attacker run arbitrary code on a Mac or allow users to increase their privilege level, according to Apple's 2005-006 update.
Two of the updates also apply to Apple's Mac OS X 10.3.9 server and client releases. One affects a Bluetooth issue that potentially allows access to files beyond those stored in the default exchange directory. The other lies in PHP, a scripting language that is often used for Web development. PHP is updated to version 4.3.11.
