On this day of the 286, CNet reports 26 Mac OS flaws have just been fixed, including remote code execution vulnerabilites.  Add to that the Macbook Pro issues [H] links to, and it's not a good day to be a Mac fanatic.

"Several of the vulnerabilities affect the way in which Mac OS X handles images and the file-sharing

capabilities of the software, according to an Apple security advisory. Other flaws were found and

fixed within components such as Fetchmail, file compression features, and DHCP networking

functionality, Apple said.

The vulnerabilities could enable a variety of attacks, security company Symantec said in an advisory

sent out to customers of its DeepSight intelligence service. "Remote attackers can execute arbitrary

code, trigger denial-of-service conditions, elevate privileges, and disclose potentially sensitive

information," Symantec said."
