    Apple has posted a security update (2003-12-05) in your software update:

    This plugs a security vulnerability that was revealed in late November.

    "... prevent unauthorized access to a user's cookies."


    Glad it only effects unauthorized access to my cookies and not the ones I've authorized. :D

    And for those that get brave, let us know if this breaks anything. I'll wait till I see a few reports on a G5 Dual running 10.3.1

    While you're working on that, could you try and get me a McLaren, Murcielago, or most any other supercar?

    Only weirdness I encountered was that iChat, Address Book and Sherlock reappeared in my Dock after I restarted. Other than that, everything is fine.

    Sure it was, your mom had authorized access to my cookies!:eek:

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I'm gonna download and install this after seeing a few more success stories.

    I will try it when I get home, but I'm sure it will be fine. I feel weird installing sercurity patches though, like I would be using XP or something.... Then I relize the Mac patches are to protect something that COULD be a problem not something that IS a problem like on windows machines.

    Installed on 15inch Tibook with 10.3.1 and no issues at all.

    I love the fact Apple always releases sec. patches as soon as they can before it becomes an issue.
