an airport update for my macbook is available, but I haven't installed it yet. Has anybody installed it? any problems, or noticeable difference?
Security Update 2006-005 is recommended for all users and improves the security of the following components.
For detailed information on this Update, please visit this website: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61798.
Probably not - at least if you believe the note on each fix in that article, "There is no known exploit for this issue."WildCowboy said:http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304420
Looks like this might be related to the "hacking" fiasco of awhile back...
Yep...similar to what's said in the MacWorld article linked in post #4. But notice that I only said "related to" and put "hacking" in quotes, so what I said was true. The internal audit was triggered by the SecureWorks hullabaloo...that's all I really meant by it, as it's been shown that the SecureWorks folks "hacked" a third party device and driver, not AirPort. But yes, thanks for providing clarification on the issue.bob_the_gorilla said:Probably not - at least if you believe the note on each fix in that article, "There is no known exploit for this issue."
According to John Gruber at Daring Fireball - and I have no idea where he got the information - the vulnerabilities were discovered in an internal audit in response to those claims, but were not reported/uncovered/whatever by the researchers who started the whole drama. There's still no evidence to suggest that those guys were telling the truth, to my knowledge.
Hmmm, like how long? So far mine has been at the white apple screen with a rotating icon for 10 minutes.berkleeboy210 said:Just downloaded on my MacBook (see specs in sig.)
And first reboot took quite some time.
Got me curious... so mine rotated 16 times before it restarted (on the "blue" screen before the hardware restart) and 57 times on the grey screen at restart. Everything worked fine, for the record.xsedrinam said:After installing Update, the Restart icon rotated 43 times before continuing to open. I am not neurotic. Just curious.
