Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Security Update 2004-09-30 Released -- Apple has released Security Update 2004-09-30, which fixes vulnerabilities in the AFP Server, the CUPS printing architecture, NetInfo Manager, postfix, and QuickTime, as well as ServerAdmin for Mac OS X Server. The update is available via Software Update, or as stand-alone downloads for Mac OS X 10.3.5 (1.5 MB) and Mac OS X 10.2.8 (652K). Apple also notes that the date on the update differs from the release date (of 2004-10-04) due to power outages the previous week at its Cupertino headquarters. [JLC]
