    Thanks for the 'up.

    Is this the unpatched Quicktime flaw that exposed recently

    Certainly looks like it.

    Plus two others

    Always welcome security updates. Time for everyone to break their uptime ;)

    Well this is just great. I did the update on my current-version Macbook, rebooted and life was great. Until my entire Mac froze. I had the beachball for about an hour, wouldn't respond to anything, was forced to hold down the power button to reboot.

    Reboot led me to the grey screen with the Apple and spinning gear. Never booted into Leopard.

    I reset the NVRAM. Nothing.

    Booted into Safe Mode. Still frozen at the grey startup screen with the Apple and spinning gear.

    Going on 20 minutes. Gear still spinning, doing nothing.

    What gives?

    And you did repair permissions before install? Yes, no? If yes then not sure. Try booting from the Leopard DVD and run disk and permission repair.

    I don't normally repair permissions before an install, but usually do after. In this case, I didn't do either (if it's that necessary, Apple needs to have a script do it automatically).

    Anyhow, I booted with my Leopard DVD and am trying to verify/repair permissions. It is going on 20 minutes trying to verify permissions. I'm scared.

    If this doesn't work, I'll try to restore from my Time Machine backup. I really hope that works...

    I really don't mean to hijack this thread, but I have serious problems with my Mac. I tried the First Aid "Verify Disk" (Leopard DVD) and it fails. This is the error:

    Volume Check Failed
    Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed

    :eek:

    Well it happened immediately after this update, so I'm not sure.

    Anyhow, good luck with the update guys. I'm skeptical.

    OK this is what I would do if disk utility couldn't fix it when you were booted from the install DVD.


    Start up the computer in single-user mode by pressing s as the computer boots.

    "Apple recommends that you connect your computer to a power source before installing. Are you sure you want to continue the installation?"

    Huh?

    Never saw that before...

    I have and I have only had my MB for a ~ month. I believe it is there to ensure that the battery will not die during the install as that would potentially wreck havoc.

    I think it's a new warning that was added with Leopard.

    I love to see how this update was released for Panther users too.

    Just think, not too long ago there were moaners complaining about how they owned perfectly good computers that were just below the minimum specs required for Leopard, so they'd end up stuck with an "unsupported" installation of "obsolete" Tiger...

    So much for "unsupported"...
    :rolleyes:

    Patch Quicktime

    I recently had problems and they seemed to arise from Quicktime. I used virus barrier to check my computer and it found that a Quicktime Plug in had been corrupted. I repaired the plug in, but when I went to sites pictures and ads would not appear. I then went to Apples site and downloaded Quicktime. I installed Quicktime 7.3 and I got pictures and ads when I went to Yahoo.

    That night I went surfing. After I was done surfing I ran a virus checker and the virus checker kept crashing, which I reported to Apple. So I reinstalled the virus checker. All of this was a pain in the pa-toot-e.

    But this vulnerability may allow passwords to be stolen from your machine. It is probably well worth while to update to QT 7.3.1. The exploited flaw may be nasty.

    No tiger probs

    No problems for me on 10.4.11 it did java plus QT and QTB no pre-binding or permissions repairs done.

    Dare I say Safari seems markedly snappier:D

    G4 PB 15 10.5.1 here. During installation, it started complaining that different programs would not shutdown. re-started the apps (they were shutdown) and terminated them, still would not re-boot, then I did some force quit, it complained that it could not shutdown because of finder not quitting.

    In the end I had to hold the power buttom until the machine shutdown, it came up and the new version of QT was not there, only the old one.

    So i did the software update agin, saw the update, and it ran like a champ this time and re-booted just fine, after that I checked the version and the new one was installed, I tried a few videos with no issue.

    Weird but seems ok.

    Parallels stop working

    What the heck was this?
    Parallels (3.0) refuse to start. Crashes directly when I try to launch it. I even reinstalled parallels... same thing.
    Did they outsource this update to Redmond, or what is going?

    Misery continued: For some reason I can't repair permissions on either my MBP C2D nor my old PM G4 MDD??? What are the odds that the same problem occurs on two different machines with different processors. There is something weird with this update.

    I am having freaky weird problems after these updates. Never had issues before. Permissions and disk check out good.

    Initial problems were with audio distortions, even in iChat. A re-boot fixed that but now apps are crashing left and right.

    I have never had issues with any Apple update before, and this is not even a major one so I expected none... <sigh>

    Same here... who expects the roof to cave in after a QT and GB update???

    I was just able to .... well. go through ... repair permissions.

    From my MBP I got:
    Warning: SUID-file "usr/libexec/load_hdi" has been changed and will not be repaired
    ....
    Warning: SUID-file "System/Library/CoreServices..../OwnerGroupTool" has been changed and will not be repaired

    WTF??????? Nine SUID-file warnings after an update??

    My MDD is still trying to get through Repair Permissions...

    I got the exact same SUID warnings on the MDD. Everything worked fine before I installed the update. Now both computers behave like Win boxes. Both computers display the same error messages after I run Repair Permissions. See photo below.

    Very short Swedish-English Dictionary:
    Varning = Warning
    har ändrats och kommer inte repareras = has been changed and vill not be repaired.
    Fel behörigheter = Wrong Permissions
    Fel användare på = Wrong user in (???)
    ska vara = should be
    användaren är = the user is
