Late Tuesday, Apple released Security Update 2010-001 for its Mac OS X operating systems. The updates, which range between a 21 and 159 megabyte download (depending on operating system), address critical vulnerabilities in the system where hackers and malicious software can take advantage and either compromise the system or steal personal information.

The update requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 or later for the Mac OS X 10.5 operating system and Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later for the Mac OS X 10.6 operating system and can also be located and snagged with Mac OS X’s Software Update feature.

If you’ve tried the updates and noticed any major changes, please let us know.

  1. I just installed three updates Security Update 2010-001, Bonjour Update 2010-001 and Remote Desktop Client Update 3.3.2, and now is not accepting the passwords to my IMAP servers. I was also asked to allow connections to two programs krb5kdc and nmbd. The execution of this update is not making me happy.

  2. I tried the update and did not check it had to be an Intel machine (I thought it would do it by itself…), the update went through and right now my machine cannot go online. I am still trying to figure out what I can do about it… any idea about how to uninstall it? :'(
