 Apple patches critical Mac OS X hole

"Apple Computer on Friday issued a patch for a security hole in Mac OS X that could have allowed hackers to take over vulnerable machines, but the company went out of its way to downplay the importance of the bug. The vulnerability in the operating system's Help View application allows attackers to craft a special URL that will execute any application, command or script on the victim's computer."
