Security Update 2010-006 was issued Monday afternoon. It applies to Mac oS X 10.6.4 and Mac OS X Server. 10.6.4. The 1.93MB file is available through Software Update or direct from Apple.
The security update is recommended for all users of Snow Leopard, and it addresses an issue where a remote attacker could access shared folders on a system, as long as they knew the name of an account name on that system. By default, file sharing is not enabled on a Mac, meaning the issue would only affect those who have the service turned on.
The original problem was caused by an error handling issue in AFP Server within Mac OS X 10.6.4. The issue does not affect systems running a version of the operating system earlier than Snow Leopard.

Security Camera Software For Mac
Through yesterday evening and this early morning I had to do a clean install of Snow Leopard.Here's the problem, the Snow Leopard version that my MacBook Pro came in was 10.6.3. I remember that when I ran software update a few months ago I upgraded to 10.6.4. hen after updating to that version of snow leopard I got the trackpad update, the Snow Leopard Graphics update, and some digital camera drivers updates the next time I ran software update, not to mention the 2 security updates that came in shortly after.
Now since I did a clean reinstall of Snow Leopard, everything went to the original state that my MacBook Pro was when I first got it. Well today I ran software update and as expected I had to upgrade to OSX 10.6.4. and some other updates such as Safari, iTunes and iLife. After finishing those updates, I again ran software update to get the Snow Leopard Graphics, Trackpad and Security Updates, and to my surprise only the Mac OS X 10.6.5 update was the only one in the Software Update list. Something worth noting is that my version of the 10.6.5 Update is 680 Megabytes rather than the 500 and something megabytes OSX 10.6.5 update according to the Apple page.
So here's my question, is software update installed the 10.6.4 Mac OS X Combo Update or will I get those missing updates once I install Mac OS X 10.6.5 update?
Thank You for your assistance in this matter.
