Apple posts DNS update (amongst other things)

I had a conversation on a private security mailing list yesterday about Apple not shipping the update to the DNS flaw yet.  So I got a hold of Apple, and they told me it would be coming out very soon.

Well, I guess late last night they posted the update.  Which, among other things, fixes a bunch of security flaws, including the DNS flaw.

Open Scripting Architecture
Data Detectors Engine
Disk Utility

Remember that ARDagent vulnerability?  Well it wasn't really a bug in how ARD works, it's a bug in how ARD calls the scripting agent.  It's fixed in the above "Open Scripting Architecture" bug.
