TITLE:
Mac OS X Update Fixes Multiple Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA20877

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/20877/

CRITICAL:
Moderately critical

IMPACT:
Exposure of system information, Privilege escalation, DoS, System
access

WHERE:
>From remote

OPERATING SYSTEM:
Apple Macintosh OS X
http://secunia.com/product/96/

DESCRIPTION:
Apple has issued an update for Mac OS X, which fixes multiple
vulnerabilities.

1) An error in the AFP server within the handling of users' search
results can be exploited by malicious users to gain knowledge of the
names of files and folders for which the user performing the search
has no access to.

2) A vulnerability within the Freshclam command line utility in
ClamAV can potentially be exploited to compromise a vulnerable
system.

For more information:
SA19880

3) A boundary error in ImageIO within the handling of TIFF images can
be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow. This crashes an
affected application and may allow arbitrary code execution when a
specially crafted TIFF image is viewed.

4) A format string error within the logging functionality of the
setuid program "launchd" can be exploited by local users to execute
arbitrary code with system privileges.

5) An error within "slapd" of the OpenLDAP server when handling an
anonymous bind operation can be exploited to crash the service via a
malformed ldap-bind message.

SOLUTION:
Apply Mac OS X Update 10.4.7.

Mac OS X 10.4.6 Client (PPC):
