Apple Releases Security Update 2010-006 for Snow Leopard

Posted by: Glenn

Apple has released Security Update 2010-006 for Snow Leopard via their Software Update utility and website. According the company, this update addresses a single issue related to AFP shared folders.

An error handling issue exists in AFP Server. A remote attacker with knowledge of an account name on a target system may bypass the password validation and access AFP shared folders. By default, File Sharing is not enabled. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.6. Credit to Richard Noll for reporting this issue.

Security Update 2010-006 for Snow Leopard weighs in at 1.93MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6.4.
