Available immediately as a download for the latest client version of Leopard (35.6MB) as well as Tiger in its PowerPC (15.9MB) and Universal (27.4MB) forms, the update primarily addresses holes in the web plug-ins for Adobe's Flash and Shockwave formats as well as web-oriented code, including Perl, Python, and Ruby.
The CUPS printing service, Safari, and Samba (SMB) networking are also key focuses of the update, Apple says. Essential OS components such as Core Foundation and Launch Services have been upgraded for all versions of Mac OS X receiving the patch.
Additional fixes are included depending on the operating system in question. Leopard receives a security upgrade to the Quick Look feature in its version of Finder, while Tiger sees fixes to Address Book, ColorSync, iChat, Mail, and Spotlight.
Mac OS X Server is not yet included in the list of software requiring the update.
