When it comes to data security, there is no “I’m a Mac” and “I’m a PC.” Hackers, malware and computer vulnerabilities are platform-agnostic, and small business owners need to be vigilant about keeping their computers safe.
This week, Apple has released an update to Mac OS — this one is called 10.6.4 — that addresses a large number of security vulnerabilities. ESecurityPlanet has the full report.
Apple’s Mac OS X is getting an update this week to version 10.6.4, providing users with a long list of security fixes, as well.
From a security perspective, the 10.6.4 release tackles a number of high-priority vulnerabilities including an updated Adobe Flash Player plug-in. Earlier this month, a zero-day security vulnerability had been found in Flash Player. A fix for Windows users became available at the end of last week with the Flash 10.1 release, while Mac users had to wait until Flash’s 10.0.45.2 update, contained in the latest OS X release.
