Apple security update
Apple's delivers a number of security enhancements and is recommended for all Macintosh users, including an updated Apple Remote Desktop: "If the Apple Remote Desktop Administrator application on another system is used to start a GUI application on the client, then the GUI application would run as root behind the loginwindow. This update prevents Apple Remote Desktop from launching applications when the loginwindow is active. This security enhancement is also present in Apple Remote Desktop v2.1. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X 10.3." Readers also note that the QuickTime 6.5.2 is also now available via the Software Update (after being posted on the Web yesterday).
