Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2004-09-16 Fixes iChat Vulnerability -- Apple last week released Security Update 2004-09-16 via Software Update and as separate downloads. The update includes a new version of iChat that fixes a potential problem whereby someone could send a link that would launch an application on your Mac. After the update is applied, clicking such a link brings up a dialog that asks you to confirm that you want to run the application. If you don't use Software Update, three separate downloads are available, each about 1 MB in size, depending on the version of Mac OS X and iChat you're running. [JLC]
