Apple issues OS X security patch

Thursday, 27 January 2005, 10:21 AM EST

Apple also noted that it has changed the naming scheme for security updates. Rather than a date format, it now will use a format based on the year and a sequence number, similar to Microsoft's system for tagging patch updates.
