CUPS
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-3641
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11,
Mac OS X v10.5.5, Mac OS X Server v10.5.5
Impact:  A remote attacker may be able to cause arbitrary code
execution with the privileges of the 'lp' user

PHP
CVE-ID:  CVE-2007-4850, CVE-2008-0674, CVE-2008-2371

Postfix
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-3646
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.5.5
Impact:  A remote attacker may be able to send mail directly to local
users
Description:  An issue exists in the Postfix configuration files. For
a period of one minute after a local command-line tool sends mail,
postfix is accessible from the network. During this time, a remote
entity who could connect to the SMTP port may send mail to local
users and otherwise use the SMTP protocol. This issue does not cause
the system to be an open mail relay. This issue is addressed by
modifying the Postfix configuration to prevent SMTP connections from
remote machines. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X
v10.5 and does not affect Mac OS X Server. Credit to Pelle Johansson
for reporting this issue.

PSNormalizer
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-3647
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11,
Mac OS X v10.5.5, Mac OS X Server v10.5.5
Impact:  Viewing a maliciously crafted PostScript file may lead to an
unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
Description:  A buffer overflow exists in PSNormalizer's handling of
the bounding box comment in PostScript files. Viewing a maliciously
crafted PostScript file may lead to an unexpected application
termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the
issue by performing additional validation of PostScript files.
Credit: Apple.

QuickLook
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-4211
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.5.5, Mac OS X Server v10.5.5
Impact:  Downloading or viewing a maliciously crafted Microsoft Excel
file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary
code execution
Description:  A signedness issue exists in QuickLook's handling of
columns in Microsoft Excel files may result in an out-of-bounds
memory access. Downloading or viewing a maliciously crafted Microsoft
Excel file may lead to an unexpected application termination or
arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by
performing additional validation of Microsoft Excel files. This issue
does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.5. Credit: Apple.

rlogin
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-4212
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11,
Mac OS X v10.5.5, Mac OS X Server v10.5.5
Impact:  Systems that have been manually configured to use rlogin and
host.equiv may unexpectedly permit root login
Description:  The manpage for the configuration file hosts.equiv
indicates that entries do not apply to root. However, an
implementation issue in rlogind causes these entries to also apply to
root. This update addresses the issue by properly disallowing rlogin
from the root user if the remote system is in hosts.equiv. The rlogin
service is not enabled by default in Mac OS X, and must be manually
configured in order to be enabled. Credit to Ralf Meyer for reporting
this issue.

Script Editor

Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11,

Impact:  A local user may gain the privileges of another user that is
using Script Editor
Description:  An insecure file operation issue exists in the Script
Editor application when opening application scripting dictionaries. A
local user can cause the scripting dictionary to be written to an
arbitrary path accessible by the user that is running the
application. This update addresses the issue by creating the
temporary file in a secure location. Credit: Apple.

Single Sign-On
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.5.5, Mac OS X Server v10.5.5
Impact:  The sso_util command now accepts passwords from a file
Description:  The sso_util command now accepts passwords from a file
named in the SSO_PASSWD_PATH environment variable. This enables
automated scripts to use sso_util more securely.

Tomcat
CVE-ID:  CVE-2007-6286, CVE-2008-0002, CVE-2008-1232, CVE-2008-1947,

Weblog
CVE-ID:  CVE-2008-4215
Available for:  Mac OS X Server v10.4.11
Impact:  Access control on weblog postings may not be enforced
Description:  An unchecked error condition exists in the weblog
server. Adding a user with multiple short names to the access control
list for a weblog posting may cause the Weblog server to not enforce
the access control. This issue is addressed by improving the way
access control lists are saved. This issue only affects systems
running Mac OS X Server v10.4. Credit: Apple.
