[http://news.com.com/Flaw+found+in+Apple+bug-fix+tool/2100-1002_3-6148606.html Apple's Bug Fix tool...is Buggy!] - [Joe] - "Vulnerability researchers behind the "Month of Apple Bugs" project, which aims to publish one flaw per day throughout January in software used on Apple platforms, announced on Monday that they have found a vulnerability in a tool that is used by a group involved in finding fixes for the flaws. APE is a third-party piece of software, written by Unsanity, designed to "enhance and redefine" the behavior of applications running on Apple platforms. APE loads plug-ins containing executable code into active applications. Month of Apple Fixes uses the software to apply run-time patches to the flaws found by the Month of Apple Bugs project. The patches insert themselves into applications when they run, find the vulnerable code and apply themselves."
