That covers all the known security flaws up to last week when the cd9660 flaw was found. Impressive. Though at least many of these flaws weren't easily exploited if reasonably possible at all (The Directory Services one being the most talked about)

Thanks for the heads up!

Chealion,

What was the cd9660 vulnerability about? The Apple Info article hasn't been updated regarding the latest security patches.

I've not found any problems after installing (requires restart) but wnder whether there's a recommended order for installing the recent spate of updates? I find that with the SU in the Apple menu I tend to run it a couple of times a day (so install the updates as soon as they are published). Probably not a great idea....
