Apple has posted security updates for Mac OS X and iTunes. The OS X update covers flaws in 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard.
The fixes will be released as an Apple security update for Leopard users, while Snow Leopard users will get the updates as part of the OS X 10.6.4 update.
The update includes 23 fixes for security issues in the operating system, including flaws which can allow remote code execution, man-in-the-middle attacks and elevation of privileges.
Additionally, the update contains fixes for serious issues in Adobe's Flash Player tool. The vulnerabilities have been a hot topic in recent weeks as Adobe has worked to develop a patch.
Users can receive the updates through the built-in OS X Software Update utility. Those using the Windows versions of iTunes will also want to update their systems.
The iTunes 9.2 update contains three fixes for the Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 versions of the media player tool.
The update fixes flaws in the ImageIO and ColorSync components which could allow remote code execution. OS X users will receive the fixes in the larger OS X update.
Users can obtain the iTunes update through the Software Update utility or through Apple's iTunes download page.
