Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Acrobat Vulnerabilities Fixed

Acrobat Vulnerabilities Fixed -- Adobe has released Adobe Reader 7.0.2 and Adobe Acrobat Standard/Professional 7.0.2 for the Macintosh, in part to fix a pair of security vulnerabilities and to improve form handling. In one vulnerability, a malicious JavaScript embedded within a PDF file could launch an arbitrary application on your Mac, at least as long as the exact application and path name is known in advance by the attacker. In the second vulnerability, the updater for Adobe Reader and Acrobat could either elevate the permissions of a pre-existing Safari Frameworks folder or create such a folder with elevated permissions.

The free 7.0.2 updaters work only on version 7.0.1; if you haven't already updated from 7.0 to 7.0.1, you must do so before updating to 7.0.2. You can either download the updates manually from the URLs below or use the Check for Updates Now command in the Help menu of each program, after which the Adobe Update Manager application will download and install the update automatically. The Adobe Reader update is an 11.2 MB download; the Acrobat Standard/Professional downloads check in at 99.6 MB. [ACE]
