Apple Releases Security Update 2010-004 and Mac OS X v10.6.4

Original release date: June 16, 2010 | Last revised: October 23, 2012

Apple has released Security Update 2010-004 and Mac OS X v10.6.4 to address multiple vulnerabilities that affect a number of applications. These vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, cause a denial-of-service condition, operate with elevated privileges, conduct man-in-the-middle attacks, alter configuration settings, or conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Note that these Apple updates include Adobe Flash Player plugin version 10.0.45.2, which contains vulnerabilities previously identified in Adobe Security Bulletin APSB10-14. The Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) has published a blog entry recommending that Mac OS X users upgrade to the latest version of the Flash Player (version 10.1.53.64) after applying these Apple updates.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review Apple Article HT4188 and the Adobe PSIRT blog entry and apply any necessary updates to help mitigate the risks.
