    There are two available now through Software Updater. Sorry, I didn't get a screenshot. One was Java for 10.5 and one was a Security Update. Approx. 47MB total. Restart was required, no problems with that.

    Thanks for your help

    r.j.s and irmongoose. I never remember how to take a screenshot when I have to quickly get one. Your visuals helped tremendously!

    Cmd+Shift+4, then space to take only 1 window.

    Nice to see this one being addressed, and nice to see credit being given where it's due.

    Lots in the security update! Thanks for the link. It looks like I can go back to using Safari for my RSS feeds. After that threat was exposed a couple/few weeks ago I had my RSS feeds taken by the Mail app. According to Apple, this security update fixes it. Thanks, :apple:! Quoting from your link:
    "Safari RSS

    CVE-ID: CVE-2009-0137

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11, Mac OS X v10.5.6, Mac OS X Server v10.5.6

    Impact: Accessing a maliciously crafted feed: URL may lead to arbitrary code execution

    Description: Multiple input validation issues exist in Safari's handling of feed: URLs. The issues allow execution of arbitrary JavaScript in the local security zone. This update addresses the issues through improved handling of embedded JavaScript within feed: URLs. Credit to Clint Ruoho of Laconic Security, Billy Rios of Microsoft, and Brian Mastenbrook for reporting these issues."

    Yup, the double-up made my head turn. I caught it on my MBP and my Mac Pro. Haven't seen the double restart in quite awhile...:eek:

    Shouldn't this at least be on MR page #2?

    What Version of Safari did you end with?

    Safari got updated both in 10.4.11 and 10.5.6 my version number stayed at 3.2.1. However Safari for windows got updated to 3.2.2 today. So did Apple update the version # for OSX Safari? mine did not change but safari refused to quit on my system before the update so I am double checking.
