Security Update 2003-11-19 Helps Panther, Jaguar -- Apple released a pair of security updates last week via Software Update, bringing both Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar and Mac OS X 10.3.1 Panther up to the same security level. Security Update 2003-11-19 improves OpenSSL security and fixes a potential problem with third-party applications using a print library. On Macs running Jaguar, the security update also fixes issues with Mail, QuickTime for Java, Personal File Sharing, and a few other vulnerabilities that were implemented in the first release of Mac OS X 10.3 Panther (see "Security Update 2003-10-28 Released" in TidBITS-704). The update for Jaguar is a 4.6 MB download; the update for Panther is a 1.3 MB download. [JLC]
