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]
