Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

Not all the fixes apply to all versions of Tiger and Leopard, but since they're all bundled together, the best advice we can give is to download and install.

Most of the bugs were discovered by Apple, which is good to hear, since it could imply that the company is performing more security auditing than in the past (for more suggestions, see Rich Mogull's "Five Ways Apple Can Improve Mac and iPhone Security," 2009-06-03).

Areas receiving attention include the Alias Manager, CarbonCore, ClamAV, ColorSync, CoreGraphics, the CUPS printing system, ImageIO, Flash Player plug-in, Launch Services, MySQL, PHP, SMB, and the Wiki Server; you can read more about the fixes in this KnowledgeBase article.

I was amused at this bug: "Viewing a maliciously crafted PixarFilm encoded TIFF image may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution." Could there be some animosity between Pixar and Apple? I mean, who else would maliciously craft a PixarFilm-encoded TIFF file?

We recommend using Software Update to get Security Update 2009-005 for simplicity's sake, but if you must download, there are numerous versions:
