Yeah you know what I mean. After Apple updated OS X 10.4.5 to OS X 10.4.6 which addressed critical security vulnerabilities, there are other possible vulnerabilities found in the updated OS X. A guy, by the name Tom Ferris, claims to have found the following vulnerabilities in the updated OS X.
- Apple OS X 10.4.5 .tiff “LZWDecodeVector ()” Heap Overflow
- Apple OS X BOM ArchiveHelper .zip Heap Overflow
- Apple OS X Safari 2.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities
- Apple OS X 10.4.6 “ReadBMP ()” .bmp Heap Overflow
- Apple OS X 10.4.6 “CFAllocatorAllocate ()” .gif Heap Overflow
- Apple OS X 10.4.6 .tiff “_cg_TIFFSetField ()” DoS
- Apple OS X 10.4.6 .tiff “PredictorVSetField ()” Heap Overflow
The first vulnerability was patched in OS X 10.4.6 however the other vulnerabilities are claimed to be unpatched in Apple OS X 10.4.6 but are already reported to Apple.
All of these have been reported to firstname.lastname@example.org around the beginning of this year. From what I have been told, they “will be fixed in the next security release”.

By the way, users who haven’t patched their OS X machines are advised to update to Apple OS X 10.4.6. You may visit Apple’s update page here.
