Apple on Wednesday released a new version of Mac OS X, 10.7.3 (Lion), to address nearly 50 security vulnerabilities.

The update also corrects other issues, including problems using smart cards to login to the OS X, authenticating to an SMB share, and connecting to a wireless network upon waking the computer up from sleep mode.
