On the "File & Web" tab, if you see "Web Sharing On" click the Stop button underneath it. If "Allow FTP access" is checked, uncheck it.
On the "Application" tab, if "Allow remote login" is checked, uncheck it.
There you go. Hopefully Apple will roll out a security patch soon on Software Update.
Its a funny thought but it woudnt make a lot of sence to do it. MS has sooo many holes in their stuff that they should be worring about those and not Open source proplems (well... they do need to worrie about the open source code they deny that they use in Windows)Originally posted by sparkleytone
