Worked perfectly though, so no complaints.

here's the link from apple, as usual no information:

http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/firmware_hardware/geforce7300gtfirmwareupdate.html

i was hoping this firmware update would allow me to now get the drivers to have portrait view on my samsung 24" synchmaster, but it gives me nothing.

what the heck is this firmware for? performance enhancements?

and how come nvidia has no apple drivers or software?

i'm freaking frustrated with nvidia, this will only force me to go with ati, or buy a completely new rig and install windows vista... all i want is portrait view!

by the way, i installed all the other updates, things are working smoothly...

Finder

Mounting a maliciously-crafted disk image may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code executionA buffer overflow exists in Finder's handling of volume names. By enticing a user to mount a malicious disk image, an attacker could trigger this issue, which may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code execution. A proof of concept for this issue has been published on the "Month of Apple Bugs" website (MOAB-09-01-2007). This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of disk images. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.4. Credit to Kevin Finisterre of DigitalMunition for reporting this issue.

iChat

Attackers on the local network may be able to cause iChat to crashA null pointer dereference in iChat's Bonjour message handling could allow a local network attacker to cause an application crash. A proof of concept for this issue in Mac OS X v10.4 has been published on the "Month of Apple Bugs" website (MOAB-29-01-2007). A similar issue exists in Mac OS X v10.3. This update addresses the issues by performing additional validation of Bonjour messages.

iChat

Visiting malicious websites may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code executionA format string vulnerability exists in the iChat AIM URL handler. By enticing a user to access a maliciously-crafted AIM URL, an attacker can trigger the overflow, which may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code execution. A proof of concept for this issue has been published on the "Month of Apple Bugs" website (MOAB-20-01-2007). This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of AIM URLs.

UserNotification

Malicious local users may be able to obtain system privilegesThe UserNotificationCenter process runs with elevated privileges in the context of a local user. This may allow a malicious local user to overwrite or modify system files. A program that triggers this issue has been published on the "Month of Apple Bugs" website (MOAB-22-01-2007). This update addresses the issue by having UserNotificationCenter drop its group privileges immediately after launching.

Interesting all MOAB fixes. Like to see MS respond to a Month of Vista Bugs. :D

I thought the DST issue had been addressed long ago, or have there been even more recent changes to DST? Ah I see, they're addressing more regions, as well as 10.3 users. :cool:

The 2007 time zone and Daylight Saving Time rule changes for the United States and most of Canada are already available in Mac OS X 10.4.5 or later.

Some additional regions that recently adopted time zone and DST changes are available in the February, 2007 Daylight Saving Time Update.

Yeah this certainly gives me that kinda feeling. Either:

- its done and they're waiting for something for it to coincide with. I would assume a release before iphone/leopard/wwdc however.
- It's already complete well in advance of when they needed it so they can now concentrate on Leopard.
- It's been delayed to add more features than initially planned

...and why the hell am i being sucked into speculating about apple..and not a particularly exciting release either. i think i caught the bug :/ help!

No reason to release 10.4.9 and then right after that, release a security update. Why not incorporate all the MOAB fixes into 10.4.9? That's the kinda thing you'd expect from Redmond, right? :)

I'm running Final Cut Studio on a PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 with 8GB RAM and an nVidia FX 4500 driving an Apple 30" Cinema Display.

You'd wouldn't get OS X started up on 2 MB of RAM, let alone do anything with it.

2 GB is another story of course. :)

True Story: I have actually started OS X up on 32MB of RAM. It takes about 10 minutes, but it runs just about. It was when I tried to install a RAM upgrade and hadn't quite done it right.

Edit: Safari certainly feels snappier here as well.

What version of FCP are using? I was using 5.0.3 but after re-installing it reverted back to 5.0.0 and Software Update doesn't catch it. If I recall correctly I should be able to delete the FCP receipt and perform an update.

Wish me luck.

updated FCP to 5.0.4

but it won't launch, the splash screen starts and then disappears

very disappointing

i haven't updated to 5.1 because Apple Canada doesn't support the exchange of install DVDs, we have to send them to the US and i didn't want to incur both the expense, hassle and the thought of possibly losing my master install DVDs

any ideas?

I suggest you save your install DVDs as disk images on a hard drive, then send them in for the crossgrade program (http://www.apple.com/universal/crossgrade/). Use Disk Utility for that (not Toast). It's well worth it. I got my crossgrade discs after about a week.

Right now, I bet FCP isn't launching at all because something's wrong with your Final Cut Studio System ID file. It's in the ProApps folder. Delete that file (or rename it, adding "old" to the end of it if you like), launch FCP and enter your serials.

It showed up in my software update.

You might have your Final Cut Studio applications somewhere other than the default install location, which is the top level of your Applications folder. If your FCS apps are somewhere else, Software Update won't find them. If Software Update were to scour everyone's hard drives everywhere, the process would take way longer.

Dam, i put all of FCS apps in a folder for easy access and put a short cut in my dock. W.E. i just manually did it...

Hey all,

update worked fine here, but there's still a lingering problem for me; whenever i use bootcamp, windows changes the time format for the computer time automatically. However, upon restarting in to OS X, the XP time standard remains and the time is off by a number of hours. In the time/date system pref, i have "set date & time automatically" checked, but it never actually does it on its own. I have to open that window in sys prefs and THEN it will change the time for me. It's a real pain in the butt. Any ideas on why this is happening??? (and by the way, my firewall allows "Network Time" to pass)

I deleted the ID file, launched FCP, entered my serial number and once again the splash screen appeared and then vanished.

So it still doesn't work.

wait are you talking about xp or os x . if your talking bout xp. hay its windows its suppose to screw up remember :)

if os x , check time zone settings could be a preference that needs resetting. or cache cleaning.

or you have a bot on your computer changing it. reformat 0 level and reinstall.

It has to do with Linux, Solaris, and OS X setting the hardware time to GMT and Windows insisting on "updating" the system clock to local time. It's because Windows decided it couldn't just go along with a standard...not that anyone should be surprised by that.

Time/Dates are hard to program.

There's so many exceptions to rules.

I'm not surprised by this.

The compiled zone files are usually fairly small, and are generally no more than 1K each in size. There's just a lot of them.

The files reside in /usr/share/zoneinfo. On some operating systems the source files are also provided here to allow users to recompile the rules if needed, using the 'zic' utility. These rule files contain a lot of historical data on time zones.

I bet that is your problem. Sounds like the update yesterday should have told you you needed to update first instead of messing up your 5.0.4. Don't worry about the master installs, simply make copies of them before sending just in case and I scanned the disks as proof then I sent them via FedEx. I was worried too but the new disks came back in two days.

It states 10.4.8 is required for the latest expanded DST update while 10.4.5 and later already contained the main US related DST changes.

I just got off the phone with Apple Tech Support. The problem was with the Preference files. I deleted:

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finalcutpro.plist
~/Library/Preferences/Final Cut Pro User Data

After much pondering, I'll go ahead with the upgrade to 5.1.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Other than this issue, things do seem a little snappier in general after the system updates.

A Mac Pro and MacBook both updated without problems.

It it my imagination, or does Apple release these security updates just a week or so before they unleash the next full update (10.4.9 in this case). While such updates are not always follow a security update (several can come out between OS version updates), OS X updates is usually preceeded by a security update (allowing those who don;t want to use the new release to still get the security updates) :eek:

Best bit about security updates is that they fix security holes,Its easier to hack into an unupdated mac if you know what the security holes are.... The macs we have in schoold arent really updated much, The version of firefox is 1.4, at least i have firefox 2 installed to my desktop.

FYI, I've noticed a few problems with Java in Safari lately. On a couple of web sites when trying to rent a car I'll hit the submit button and either nothing happens or the response is as if I had put in screwy dates. It seems like this used to work so it could be something on this system became corrupt. Scans of permissions and the disk showed nothing wrong. The same websites work fine with IE on windows. I tried a restart but nothing changed.

Edit: After applying the Java update the sites I had trouble with now work fine. I don't what the problem was but it was fixed by the update.

I think he was joking by saying the default reply people say after any Apple update of any kind.

Since I have installed the Security Update 2007-002 on 2 computers, I've checked for Software Updates and it suggest me to download iTunes + QuickTime 7.0.2 and Security Update 2007-001, both of which I already installed.

Anyone noticed the same thing?

Did anyone get a gray world symbol (like a flat globe) on boot after installing these updates? I've never seen it before, and I can't see anyone mentioning it on any forums.

Before the gray Apple symbol showed up, there was a gray World logo for a long time before it finally displayed the Apple and continued booting.

Never seen it myself, but here's what it is:

It has to do with Linux, Solaris, and OS X setting the hardware time to GMT and Windows insisting on "updating" the system clock to local time. It's because Windows decided it couldn't just go along with a standard...not that anyone should be surprised by that.

but what if your Windows Time ( local time ) is GMT. surely that would mean that both windows and osx have the same time. My local time is GMT, and there's still a time difference between OSX and Windows.

I got that here, too.
For me they showed up at the same time as Security Update 2007-002, and continue to do so after I installed that one. Allowing them to download results in a failure to decompress, however.

>edit<
They no longer show up for me.

I was getting the failure to decompress message as well - went to the download section and installed from there - all went well. I set Software Update to ignore the ones I was having problems with. All up to date and running well - I think.

Thanks for the help. Mystery solved. However, network boot was never selected, it must have been a system error (system froze and I had to do a hard reset right before this problem occurred). It's fixed now, although my screen stays black for quite a long time every time I power on. Here's hoping Leopard comes out in March so I can wipe the drive clean and hopefully fix the damage.

What are the times reported in each OS, and what are the designated time zones?

I was able to download and install the Java update without problem

However, the Security Update 2007-002 and DST Update are both failing every time I try.

While downloading those updates, it says at the bottom, downloading (X MB of ----- remaining) where X is the amount of the update downloaded so far (and goes up normally) but there is nothing but dashes for how big it is. It shows how big it is in the top window, just not in the download section.

After it finishes downloading (the correct size as indicated in the top window), I get the red ! for each and a dialog comes up saying, "A network error has occurred: Error NSURLErrorDomain-1005(-1005). Make sure you can connect to the internet, then try again.

I AM connected to the internet. I've rebooted, no difference. I've deleted the com.Apple.SoftwareUpdate folder in the Library/Cache in the hopes that that helps, but no.

Anyone else having this problem?

When asking a question like that, it's helpful to report your system specs.

neato, FCP update 5.1.4 and WWAN update in SWU.

I restarted a few times (including shutting down then starting, as opposed to simply restarting). I also tried resetting my PRAM, fixing permissions, trashing my plist for software update. Still the same problem...

As problems go, though, it's not a showstopper. I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear though.

I guess the unnerving part is the notion that maybe that the update didn't quite take.

Yeah, I know. It's just a bit annoying.

I think the update is installed because my software update log shows that it has been.

Get Info of iChat.app and if it says it's at version 3.1.6 then Security Update 2007-002 hasn't properly installed even though your Mac says it did.

Hey, thanks for that link.

I only have English and Japanese on my system, so it is consistent with others having the same problem on that board (where they've deleted languages they don't use).

My iChat app is 3.1.6, so the update hasn't installed properly on my system.

I don't know if this is related, but my PowerBook's audio ceased today. Also, keyboard shortcuts for Safari stopped working. These two different problems appeared at different times of the day. A restart fixed both of these problems. I'm wondering if a failed (partial?) security update install caused this problem. I've never had this happen before..

Your welcome. You can use kikusan's instructions on how to successfully install the update if you haven't done it already.

Have you tried signing in using Firefox, or another browser? Do contact Citrix about this, and Apple as well. Also, try emptying Safari's cache. I hope there's a work around in the meantime.
