Mac update included in latest patch release.

Lumension Security : 16 July, 2007  (Technical Article)
Patchlink warns of vulnerability spread due to re-use of application programming across different platforms.
The latest Patch Tuesday Bulletin adds MSO7-036 security update to the Mac, Alan Bentley, managing director of vulnerability management specialist, PatchLink EMEA commented:

"The recent trend showing software vulnerabilities moving up the stack to the application layer may require that organisations review their approach to application vulnerability management. This vulnerability (MS07 036) is an excellent example of an independent software vendor (ISV) reusing application code and introducing a common vulnerability across different platforms. This should cause organisations to evaluate their ability to manage application vulnerabilities across disparate platforms."

"If organisations currently rely on platform-specific tools to track, remediate and audit vulnerabilities, they will be challenged in their ability to manage these types of vulnerabilities. For example, organisations that solely rely on WSUS to manage this latest MS07-036 update will be unable to verify the elimination of this vulnerability on the Macintosh platform. Managing application vulnerabilities will become a growing problem as ISVs provide more and more enterprise applications that run on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh."
