Apple security update

Apple today released , which it says delivers a number of security enhancements and is recommended for all Macintosh users. This update includes the following components: CoreFoundation, IPSec, Kerberos, libpcap, lukemftpd, NetworkConfig, OpenLDAP, OpenSSH, PPPDialer, rsync, Safari, and tcpdump. Apple says the update fixes a JavaScript security issue in Mac OS X 10.2.8 (already avaialable as an update to Safari), a fix for the Safari tab vulerability noted last month, denial of service vulnerability in Apache 2, the Kerberos flaws noted last month, QuickTime Streaming Server security issues, and other applications that ship with Mac OS X Server, as noted in the documentation.

    Don't Panic !

    Ran this on a Powerbook G4; upon restart, kernel panicked.

    After fsck large multitude of orphan nodes, corrected.
    To be safe, we re-ran fsck, this time directory repairs.
    3rd time, all is well, but Apple Tech says run hardware DVD overnite in loop mode. Never be the first one to run an update.

    No trouble

    So far, two of four machines updated: a 1.33GHz 12" PB and a GigE PowerMac w/ a 1.4GHz upgrade. No problems.

    Hate having to reboot the GigE PowerMac (its also my fileserver), but hurray for Apple security updates.

    Clock problem

    After installing the upgrade, I lost the date/time clock on my QuickSilver dual 800 MHz. Using Date & Time on System Prefs doesn't bring it back.

    Found one issue

    Work at Grand Valley State University and now our website looks all funky.

    www.gvsu.edu

    the text appearing at the top is supposed to be the menu options of the graphic below, which of course are also not working.

    OH well its IE for a while.

    Back to normal

    My computer froze, so I rebooted, and my date/time on the menu bar came back.
