Apple Snow Leopard update download available

Warwick Ashford

Apple has released an update for the Snow Leopard OS less than two weeks after the official release of this latest version of the Mac OS X operating system.

Version 10.6.1 includes an update to Adobe Flash player. Hackers are increasingly targeting earlier versions of the software plug-in to exploit vulnerabilties fixed in later versions.

The first release of Snow Leopard would have overwritten Adobe Flash Player with a slightly older version that was more vulnerable to attack than the latest version from Adobe.

The Snow Leopard update also fixes a host of compatibility issues with Sierra wireless 3G modems, some printer drivers, keyboard shortcuts, mail servers and multimedia software.

Snow Leopard Server 10.6.1 includes all these fixes as well a fix for servers with multiple network interfaces reporting a duplicate serial number in use.

The update can be accessed using Software Update in Snow Leopard or from the Apple download site.
