There were security updates yesterday.

And we’re still trying to figure out what was specifically changed.

Per The Mac Observer, Apple released security updates for Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) and Lion (OS X 10.7) on Tuesday, for both the client and server versions of the OSes.

The patch notes for all four updates say precisely nothing, and Apple’s security update page—where security patch notes get released—has not yet been updated with these releases.

Still, if you’re running Mac OS X 10.6 or later, make sure to run the Software Update feature to snag and install the latest updates.

For those of you who like the direct approach, here are the download links for the updates:
About Security Update 2013-002 (Lion) – 57.68MB

About Security Update 2013-002 Server (Lion) – 105.61MB

About Security Update 2013-002 (Snow Leopard) – 329.85MB

About Security Update 2013-002 Server (Snow Leopard) – 404.83MB

If you’ve tried the security updates and noticed any differences, please let us know in the comments.

  1. This kills the network functionality on computers running 10.6.8

  2. Ut oh, can you corroborate this with other 10.6.8 users anywhere?

  3. I am trying with no luck. If it is a fluke, it is strange that it has happened on the three computers running 10.6.8 that have been updated. (I sent a company email telling people not to update after the first three went down)

  4. Thank you for responding! I’m seeing others having issues pop up on the Apple Discussions threads. Some are unable to use Airport properly, etc.

    Sounds scary. I think I’m going to wait on this one or maybe test it on my clone first.

  5. Does this take a long time to install? It prompted for reboot, grinding gears… Screen goes black, but then I hit keyboard and screen turns back on and there’s grinding gears…
    Not sure if I should hit the power button.
