Apple released the third build of Mac OS X 10.6.8 to developers, who can now download the 1GB file named 10K531. The areas that would be tested in this build are Airport, Mac App Store, Graphics Driver, QuickTime, Networking and VPN. Apple released developer builds of the Mac OS X every week, which started two weeks ago with the first build. The second build was deployed last week. This way the company can come up with a stable version faster than before.
There is no word yet whether the Mac OS X 10.6.8 will feature the fix that would seek and destroy the Mac Defender malware. Apple would most likely release the security patch as a standalone. The company did promise to release an update to the Mac OS X that will solve the issue with the fake antivirus software that would automatically download a phishing scam that would ask for users’ credit card. The Mac Defender first appeared early this month and most security experts downplayed it as just a simple phishing scam rather than a viral attack.
Apple is set to launch the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion this summer. It would contain various features and improvements that are drawn from Apple’s iOS mobile platform.
