US-Cert alerts Apple users to install a newpatch for several vulnerabilities:

Apple has released Security Update 2006-003 to correct multiple vulnerabilities affecting Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server, Safari web browser, Mail, and other products. The most serious of these vulnerabilities may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. Impacts of other vulnerabilities include bypassing security restrictions and denial of service.

What's sad is Apple left a bunch of known critical vulnerabilities un-addressed. And right on the heals of those there is another new vulerability with how OS X handles TIFF files. You can read the article here (please post comments back here at BleepingComputer.com).

What is going on? Apple is becoming Microsoft-like in their handling of security holes! :thumbsup:
