    Just ran software update and found those 3 things ready to install.

    Unfortunately the security update requires a reboot so there goes people's uptime.

    Don't you mean iTunes 6.0.4? I didn't need to reboot either...

    EDIT:

    Oh, you ran security update thats why you needed to reboot.

    They fixed the disguised file problem... after what, a week, two weeks?
    Never seen MS do something like this this fast.
    We are now officially virus free again :p

    Well, it's a lot easier to fix the problems they had, then MS's problems are. Microsoft's virus tend to be because the application affected is inherently flawed. Appe's problems were only because someone found a loophole in the way the program properly executed. So while Microsoft has to rip apart the code of an application, all Apple has to do is add a couple lines to handle a specific subset of things from occring.

    Still, who's the one at fault? It's not a fair comparison just because MS' code base sucks? :rolleyes:

    I'm not suggesting that Microsoft hasn't dug their own grave when it comes to fixing flaws, I'm just explaining that Apple didn't have to work as hard as Microsoft would have to.

    I agree with you, I am just saying that suggesting, as some people are, that OS X is no more secure than Windows maybe one factor, although I'd still argue that, but at least our vulnerabilities only last a week or two.

    If there wouldn't have been the problem with Safari automatically opening files and it being turned on by default. :rolleyes:
    Still, despite some other people, I like this feature.

    Is the security update only available for OSX 10.4.5?

    I'm running OSX 10.4.4 and don't see it listed... Will upgrade to 10.4.5 (or probably 10.4.8 by then :D) in a couple of weeks, just before I go home from Uni for easter. I can't afford to be without my Mac up here at the minute, and don't have my installer DVD's with me, so if things go pear-shaped, I can't reinstall quickly....

    That's the beauty of an external drive and SuperDuper! or CCC. If something does go wrong just clone back the other way and you're done! Plus, if you have another Mac at home, just take your external drive with you at Easter and keep on computing.

    Yes, and 10.3.9, as stated on the Apple Security Updates page... :)

    This was the actual message from Software Updater about the security update, BTW (didn't comy the one for iTunes 6.0.4 and I don't have iPhoto 6):

    Ive been running with the new security update for about an hour, and Ive to Force Quit Safari twice now.

    The first time, i was reading an email, then came back to safari, and it wouldnt respond, couldnt click on it at all. Tried to quit from the dock, but had to go to Force Quit.

    The second was after watching EyeTv with safari in the background, a program break came on, I tried to go to safari, and had to Force quit it again.

    Ive done all the usual, repair permissions etc. So we'll see what happens.
