APPLE-SA-2006-03-13 Security Update 2006-002

Security Update 2006-002 is now available and addresses the following

CVE-ID:  CVE-2006-0400
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.5, Mac OS X Server v10.4.5
Impact:  Remote web sites can cause JavaScript to bypass the
same-origin policy
Description:  When documents containing Javascript are loaded
from a remote site, data access is restricted by the same-origin
policy. However, under certain situations, maliciously-crafted
archives can cause these restrictions to be bypassed. This
update addresses the issue by flagging these documents as

CVE-ID:  CVE-2006-0396
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.5, Mac OS X Server v10.4.5
Impact:  Double-clicking an attachment in Mail may result in
arbitrary code execution
Description:  By preparing a specially-crafted email message with
attachments, and enticing a user to double-click on that
attachment within Mail, an attacker may trigger a buffer
overflow. This could result in the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running Mail. This issue
addresses the issue by performing additional bounds checking.
This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.4.

Safari, LaunchServices, CoreTypes
CVE-ID:  CVE-2006-0397, CVE-2006-0398, CVE-2006-0399
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.5, Mac OS X Server v10.4.5
Impact:  Viewing a malicious web site may result in arbitrary
code execution
Description:  Security Update 2006-001 addressed an issue where
Safari could automatically open a file which appears to be a
safe file type, such as an image or movie, but is actually an
application. This update provides additional checks to identify
variations of the malicious file types addressed in Security
Update 2006-001 so that they are not automatically opened. This
issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.4. Credit to
Will Dormann of CERT/CC and Andris Baumberger for reporting
several of these issues.

The following non-security issues introduced by Security Update
2006-001 are also addressed by this update:

* Download Validation: Security Update 2006-001 could cause the
user to be warned when provided with certain safe file types,
such as Word documents, or folders containing custom icons.
These unneeded warnings are removed with this update.

* apache_mod_php: A regression in PHP 4.4.1 that could prevent
SquirrelMail from functioning is corrected with this update.

* rsync: A regression in rsync that prevented the "--delete"
command line option from functioning is corrected with this
