lots of security updates these days... oh well, as long as they're solid I'd rather have updates than security holes.

Another security update?! :eek:

Apple is just cranking these out nowadays.

Anyway, it looks like a little one, just 1.5 MB. Installing it now.

And edit ... it requires a restart ... doh.

No problems

Just installed it, no problems so far on a 15"PB, 1GHz

Although the Finder does feel a bit snappier.



Just kidding, it seems the same.

I'd rather it be late and work right, than on-time and fubar'd.

Actually, it did seem to fix a problem I had where the Applications and Macintosh HD folders kept scrambling their icons.

Hmm, yet another security update - there have been quite a few lately! Ah well, I don't mind applying them since I know Apple is doing a timely and thorough job on addressing security issues, whether they are minor or not. One can never be too careful! :cool:

I've noticed the same thing lately too. It happened after I installed the most recent Java update, but I don't see what that would have had to do with it though really. As for today's "9/30" update, it installed and everything is a-ok afterwards. :)

It's cool that Apple acknowledges the person who reported a security issue.

CUPS
Impact: Local disclosure of user passwords
Description: Certain methods of authenticated remote printing could disclose user passwords in the printing system log files. Credit to Gary Smith of the IT Services department at Glasgow Caledonian University for reporting this issue.

I installed the security update and everything works fine. In fact I've never had any problems after installing Apple updates. Some of you guys must have your Macs seriously tricked-out to always be complaining about problems :)

Damn Apple, I've lost my 2 days uptime :-D

Glad Apple are keeping up with security fixes even though Tiger is just around the corner.

Same Here! I just don't understand all these problems. I've had Macs most of my life and I always install updates and never had any problems or glitches!
