OS X: Another month, more patches!

What a patch month this is for Apple and OS X.

AAPL is patching 43 vulnerabilities in OS X. 43!

Mind you, this is the 3rd month of patching. 43!

And where is Mac fanboy? 43!

43 vulns!

While AAPL does not rate the criticality of the patches, a security firm rates a couple of them as 'very critical'.

Read me that manifesto about the security of OS X again. While I’m trying to patch wifey’s PowerBook and the G5.


Isn’t that more than MSFT has patched XP in the year so far?

Repeat: 43 vulns!
