Just hitting the streets, as we speak, Apple released OSX update 10.5.5. Built into 10.5.5 is Security Update 2008-006, marking the 6th major security update of the year. So aside from the ton of updates in 10.5.5 for OSX Leopard, check out the below updates included with it.
Keep in mind that Security Update is not just for 10.5 (OSX Leopard), being that it is also available for 10.4, Desktop and Server releases.
