Security Update 2004-05-03 Released -- Apple seems to enjoy releasing security updates on Monday afternoons. This week, the company unveiled Security Update 2004-05-03, a 4.2 MB package that updates the AFP Server, CoreFoundation, and IPSec components of the operating system, and includes the components of the earlier Security Update 2004-04-05. For owners of Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, the update provides the same new components, but in a 9.8 MB download. No other details were available at press time. Both updates are available via Software Update; standalone downloads will likely be available by the time you read this. [JLC]
