Apple Releases Security and Java Updates -- Apple last week released Security Update 2005-004, a 1 MB download that replaces an iSync component that could be vulnerable to a buffer overflow. Also released was Java Update for Mac OS X 10.3.9, which solves a crashing problem with running Java applets that affected some users after they installed the Mac OS X 10.3.9 Update. The Java Update is a 1 MB download; both updates are also available via Software Update. [JLC]
