    Default OS X Security Update Fixes RSS Vulnerability.


    Apple has seeded Security Update 2009-001 via the Software Update utility. Among the many various things that are updated this security update patches the Safari RSS vulnerability that we covered back in January.
    Safari RSS

    CVE-ID: CVE-2009-0137

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11, Mac OS X v10.5.6, Mac OS X Server v10.5.6

    Impact: Accessing a maliciously crafted feed: URL may lead to arbitrary code execution

    Description: Multiple input validation issues exist in Safari's handling of feed: URLs. The issues allow execution of arbitrary JavaScript in the local security zone. This update addresses the issues through improved handling of embedded JavaScript within feed: URLs. Credit to Clint Ruoho of Laconic Security, Billy Rios of Microsoft, and Brian Mastenbrook for reporting these issues.
    To read full details of this security update please visit the Apple info page.

    Other things that were updated at the same time include Safari 3.2.2 which patches the same RSS vulnerability as Safari OS X and also a Java Update which improves security and compatibility of Java on Mac OS X.

    That's unfortunate... any luck getting it to work again? I am kinda scared to update on my MacBook now... What's with all of these terrible updates breaking things that are working fine nowadays?

    My Air is still on 10.5.5 so this update doesn't affect me but please report about the keyboard and track pad issue in case I wanna update.

    i just tried installing this update but an error popped up stating the file or some crap had been compromised or tampered with since Apple put it out. So it did not install, thankfully since you guys are having problems with it. Hopefully this gets addressed soon.
