It is much more important to know what sort of patient has a disease than what sort of disease a patient has - Sir William Osler
BSD SHELL DEVELOPER Apple has finally patched a bug causing application crashes in the Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 delta, a month after the problems were first reported.
We revealed in the first week of February that Apple had pulled its delta update for Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 after users complained of applications crashing.
Apple reported that the update resolves an issue that occurs when restoring a Mac from a Time Machine backup.
Meanwhile, over at Adobe that software company has also been bug stomping. The company has issued two priority updates to address critical vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player.
These vulnerabilities, Adobe said, could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.
Users of Flash 188.8.131.52 and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Solaris are advised update to Adobe Flash Player 184.108.40.206. But, for users who cannot update, Adobe has developed a patched version of Flash Player 10.x, Flash Player 10.3.183.16, which can be downloaded here.
Also affected are Adobe Flash Player 220.127.116.11 and earlier versions for Android 4.x, together with Adobe Flash Player 18.104.22.168 and earlier versions for Android 3.x and 2.x. Users of these and earlier versions on Android 4.x devices should update to Adobe Flash Player 22.214.171.124. Users of Adobe Flash Player 126.96.36.199 and earlier versions for Android 3.x and earlier versions should update to Flash Player 188.8.131.52.
Adobe said the security warning is graded level two for all systems and releases - critical. µ
