researcher has again taken Apple Computer to task for not adequately labeling the seriousness of the security flaws described in its advisories.

Five vulnerabilities released Monday affect various components of the Mac OS X operating system. The greatest threat is a buffer overflow in the Apple file-sharing system that could allow a remote attacker to take over control of the system. But the company described it as a correction "to improve the handling of long passwords."

Actually, Apple has shown different approaches to to those update readme files. Right now it seems that they have hired a copywriter who has decided to hide the actual info in a lot of newspeak. however, it is not that hard to dig up sensible information anyway. The Apple support siote is pretty decent and there are lotsa high end support communities for OS X.
