Move the Dock Quickly

You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.

Security Update 2013-003 for Mountain Lion, Lion, and Snow Leopard

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Security Update 2013-003 for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion (20.4 MB) as well as for 10.7 Lion and 10.6 Snow Leopard, both of which receive two versions: Lion (61 MB) and Lion Server (111.3 MB), plus Snow Leopard (349.5 MB) and Snow Leopard Server (424.5 MB). All versions of this security update close vulnerabilities with buffer overflows within QuickTime that could lead to “unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.” In particular, the updates deal with buffer overflows in Sorenson and H.264 encoded movie files, plus the handling of “mvhd” movie header atoms.

Installed this last night on my 10.6 MacBook. Fried my system...I can boot from Carbon Copy Cloner clone on external HD, but can't boot from my internal HD (actually, an SSD). I guess it's time to reformat my SSD and restore, huh? (Yes, I've tried TechTool, DiskUtility, etc...Applejack says it's waiting for root device.)
Anyone else having this issue?
