If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.

Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard)

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard) to address a critical vulnerability in the way Apple Type Services in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard parses embedded fonts. Users who view or download any documents containing maliciously crafted embedded fonts run a risk of arbitrary code execution. The update addresses this issue by improving index checking. This vulnerability was first demonstrated by Charlie Miller at the Pwn2Own conference 20 days ago, which shows a reasonably quick response on Apple's part. The update requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 and is available via Software Update and the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 6.5 MB)

Comments about Security Update 2010-003 (Snow Leopard)

Unfortunately this security patch messed up the connection between Entourage and my Exchange Server 2003. Anyone that has a solution for this or has experienced the same thing?
I can on longer receive emails from live.com (i.e. Hotmail) on Entourage. Very frustrating.
