Apple Fixes Brand New Mac Pro

Five patches for the two-day-old, top-of-the-line computer were with the Aug. 1 security upgrade for several Apple machines.

Apple Computer Inc. on Wednesday issued a security update for the Mac Pro, the top-of-the-line Intel Xeon-based system that the company rolled out only two days before.

The fix, dubbed Update 2006-004 for Mac Pro, adds 5 patches included with the Aug. 1 security upgrade for the Cupertino, Calif. company's other systems, to Apple's newest and beefiest client computer.

Two sections of that update -- four patches for the ImageIO component to defend against malicious TIFF files, and one fix for the OpenSSH server -- weren't included with the version of Mac OS X 10.4.7 pre-loaded on the new Mac Pro machines.

"The fixes for these issues were not fully tested in time for the manufacturing of the Mac Pro," said Apple in an online support document, "and [so] are being provided via this security update."

The update can be downloaded from the Apple site, or users can retrieve the patches using their Mac Pro's built-in update function.
