Apple Computer has issued a security patch to correct seven vulnerabilities in the OS X operating system. The vulnerabilities were discovered in the Safari browser, the e-mail program, the ColorSync system, and other parts of the OS.

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.
