Apple's Security Update 2008-005: DNS workaround finally included

Apple released their patch overnight (depending on your timezone of course).

Most importantly it contains the workaround for the DNS bug CVE-2008-1447. Also included is an upgrade to PHP 5.2.6 (which was released in source code at on May 1st). Seems we all need to urge Job's gang to release patches significantly faster: it's the price to pay to base parts of your system on open source code.

Apple Mac OS X users get it though software update. As always it's one big patch, given that little choice,  you'll want to PATCH NOW.
