Security Update 2003-10-28 Released

Security Update 2003-10-28 Released -- Although Mac OS X 10.3 Panther fixes a number of security-related flaws that existed in previous versions of Mac OS X, Apple has wasted no time in releasing Security Update 2003-10-28 via Software Update last week. Security Update 2003-10-28 fixes a problem that could allow unauthorized access to a system through a vulnerability in QuickTime for Java. The update is only for computers running Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, and is a 782K download.
