Hmm, 20mb for 10.8, and a hefty 347mb for 10.6

That's the normal pattern. When Apple releases a security update it usually incorporates earlier security updates going back to the last minor system version number update (which incorporated all security updates prior to that point), so that people installing the system from scratch only need to apply a single system version update followed by a single security update, instead of multiple security updates.

This means that security updates are generally larger for older major system versions, because they have had a longer time since the last minor version number update, and more security updates have accumulated.

Snow Leopard has been accumulating security updates since 10.6.8 was released in June 2011.

Lion has been accumulating security updates since 10.7.5 was released in September 2012.

Mountain Lion's security update only needs to include this batch of fixes, since all earlier ones are included in 10.8.4, which was released in June 2013.

So according to that, the security fixes were only concerning Quicktime?

I kept wondering why it didn't show for me on the App Store.... Then, I realized I was running 10.8.5 :p and this only patches .4 or earlier!

Hey, what about us developers on 10.9?! :p j/k

Quicktime really needs an overhaul. Quicktime X doesn't support a plethora of codecs that most use, I'm sure they can work out licensing if need be for AC3, AVI, MKV, etc. It's embarrassing as the base media system for OS X when most have to use VLC.

Very unlikely, since it's a security update. Sometimes driver updates can disable audio or ethernet - requiring you to re-install the drivers. But If you have a natively supported graphics card & processor you shouldn't have issues.

Also using a Mac OSX supported usb audio, ethernet or wifi card can solve this problem permanently =).

10.6 wasn't mentioned when I posted. I triple checked the post to make sure.

And the link provided did not say anything about the security content when I posted.

Yeah... I just did the update, my Hackintosh is still fully functional. I also update my Mac Mmi and MacBook Air, so I do have real Macs... But Hackintosh is always fun to play with

'Fixed'? the issue sounds like something wrong with your setup - have you tried deleting the Safari settings in your Library directory?

For the first time ever, I experienced an 'update failed to load' error after the installation seemed to go through all its steps. I went to Apple to try to download it manually (rather than via Software Update), and got a 404 error. Very strange, no? (I'm using an older MacBook, ca. 2007, with a 2.16 MHz Intel Core 2 Duo).

I am also having the same problem with the update failing to load. I'm using a late-2007 MacBook Pro. So far I've had no luck finding a workaround.
