Apple Computer released a software patch on Tuesday to fix seven vulnerabilities in its Mac OS X operating system.

The fix repairs flaws in the Safari browser, the Mail program and the ColorSync utility as well as four open-source programs, the computer maker stated in an advisory.

Apple also announced that it would be changing how it names its advisories, numbering the bulletins sequentially for each year, a scheme currently used by Microsoft.

Apple Mac OS X users can update their systems using the operating system’s updating utility.
