Apple fixed iSink

Setting Orange, 37th Discord, 3171.

Apple fixed the problem mentioned in the article Local root on MacOS X … still. It seems to be the only fix provided by this update:

Security Update 2005-004

Available for: iSync 1.5 on Mac OS X v10.2.8 and Mac OS X v10.3.x
CVE-ID: CAN-2005-0193
Impact: A buffer overflow in iSync could lead to local privilege escalation.
Description: The iSync helper tool mRouter contains a buffer overflow vulnerability. This could result in the execution of arbitrary commands as root by local system users. Security Update 2005-004 fixes this issue by providing a patched version of mRouter. Credit to Braden Thomas for reporting this issue.
