Apple has issued the last major update to the Snow Leopard operating system prior to the release of the Lion next month. The update covers 36 vulnerabilities in Snow Leopard, changes to the App Store and pre-requisite software updates for downloading Lion through the App Store.
Tucked into Mac OS X 10.6.8 were patches for 36 security flaws, 29 of them tagged with Apple's traditional phrase "arbitrary code execution," the company's way of saying the flaws are critical. Apple does not assign severity rankings to vulnerabilities.
