Apple released a security update for Mac OS X 10.3.9 [Panther] and Mac OS X 10.4.9 [Tiger], fixing numerous security holes in both system versions. The update includes patches for Alias Manager, BIND, CoreGraphics, crontabs, fetchmail, file, iChat, mDNSResponder, PPP, ruby, screen, texinfo, and VPN. After installing this update, your Mac might take a few minutes to re-boot. MacMedics generally installs security updates soon after they are released. In this case we don’t feel the possible risks warrant an “immediate” install. This update just came out yesterday, so we’re installing it on a case-by-case basis, while we continue to test its effects.
