What has been released to install as a security update? I seem to be clicking on one web link which takes me to another and nothing to actually install. Typical Apple. Really wish I hadn't bought this MacCrap Air - I do miss my PC.
When Flash Trojan was announced Apple sent 2 software updates. iMac downloaded and installed them via software update. (see attached graphic) Mac Mini did not and only advised that "that there is no new software and that software is up to date".
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I have problems since applying the latest security Update 2009-001 and Java 10.5 Update 3, I have 10.5.6 on the new unibody 2.4ghz and have completely lost the ability to connect to my wireless access point which is an apple airport extreme base station.
I can sometimes se the base station but cannot connect to it and sometimes cannot see it at all. I have three other apple computers at home all less then a year old running the same build of 10.5.6 but have not updated them and they all are fine.
This one was perfect untill I applied the update.
The machine I am having problems with is partitioned with windows 7 beta on it which has no problems connecting to the base station, which indicates that its not a hardware problem but more then likely the update which is causing the problem.
Is there a way to uninstall the last update or delete it? Any one with a similar problem or know how I can fix it, I have googled but cannot seem to find anyone with similar problems.
I just updated java for MAC OS X 10.6 which is a security update. I have no idea whether I am using java applets in my web browser. I am unwilling to disable the java web plugin in my web browser until I know what I'm giving up.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.6)
I was double checking software updates to see if the Java patch for the flashback virus and noticed it's not showing any Java updates. I tried several times and it just says that my software is up to date. Further, the security update history of my Mac was compared to Apple's update history and noticed that there have never been Java updates installed?
When I check for software updates only itunes and random other updates show up but not security updates or safari update. When i check installed updates I realized my last security update was 2011-004 and I still have safari 5.0.6.
anyone with a 8600F scanner still works after updating to the latest security updates on osx? Mine stopped working after updating. I can still use the scanner in windows but not in osx. this is driving me nuts.
Attached is a picture of my iTunes. It says I have 12 apps ready to be updated but then when I click to get them it says there are none available. What does that mean? I definately know that there are updates ready.
I am trying to view a webcam to watch my dog at daycare, when i try viewing it i am told that i need to upgrade my java. did that java told me i downloaded it and ready to use.
but everytime i log into the site and click on the webcam i get a blank screen. i then get a message that my security is blocking me from using java.
What my security should be set at in order to use java. as far as i can see i have everything right. But still cannot view it on my macbook pro. i have OS X 10.9.3. I can view the webcam on my iphone and ipad but i need to refresh every couple minutes. When i sign into the daycare it ask me if i want to use JPEG, GIF or 3G. which is the correct one.
I just found out that Apple is no longer providing security updates on Mac OS X 10.5. What can I do to keep my comupter safe? I bought my laptop in Sept. '08 and I am not inclined to fork over a couple of thousand dollars when I have a perfectly functioning laptop.
I am no longer receiving scheduled automatic security updates and unable to find the latest on the Apple site. I understand there are threats out there and am very reluctant to link onto any diagnosis' and cures unless through the Apple site.
Apple on Wednesday afternoon issued a number of updates, addressing high processor usage and other glitches in its 27-inch iMac, as well as various security updates for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
27-inch iMac updates
Two updates released Wednesday address issues with the 27-inch big screen iMac, released in October 2009.
"27-inch iMac EFI FW Update 1.0" is recommended for all systems with quad-core Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. The update resolves an issue that caused high processor utilization when playing audio through the headphone output, and fixes a problem that prevented the display backlight from turning on after powering on the iMac.
The 2.1MB update is available for download from Apple. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 or later.
"27-inch iMac SMC Firmware Update 1.0" fixes Target Display Mode compatibility issues on the 27-inch desktop iMac. The 397KB update also requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 or later.
Got a suspicious email wanting security updates on my bank accounts. Didn't use the link in the email & didn't knowingly download anything from the email. Went to another server & accessed my bank account to get an address to forward the email to. Went back to my mail & found that the suspected phishing email had vanished. My bank says I most likely got a virus from the email, thinks my account(s) has been compromised & advised me to scan my computer for malware before trying to go to my account again.My Software update shows I have the latest security, I never got a message advising me of suspicios sites or downloads. So how do I check for a virus or malware???
I have tried software update, I've tried downloading the update and installing it manually... no matter what I do, my machine is always running 1.5 when I need 1.6.
Code: java -version java version "1.5.0_20" Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_20-b02-315) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_20-141, mixed mode, sharing) How can I get my machine to find the 1.6 version and use it permanently?
I'm running an intel iMac Core 2 Duo from a few months back. I installed the most recent security update for Mac OS X Leopard and after the reboot the computer worked fine for 2 more boots.
(Note: during these boots I noticed that often my computer would get the spinning rainbow wheel for a long time before it went away. It happened at apparently no prompting.)
After those I installed the game City of Heroes on my macintosh and then attempted to install the new safari and Java update (I haven't updated in a while.)
I was told the Java update and safari update failed to install. I rebooted to try again and attempted to install again. Both failed.
I gave up and started playing CoH. About 2 hours after playing my game froze. I was running ventrillo at the same time and was able to talk on that.
After many failed tries to use command + option + escape I decided to hold down the power button to reboot my computer. The first attempt yielded a solid blue screen.
The second attempt the computer started fully. Stupidly I assumed the problem was fixed and didn't backup software and files.
I tried to run City of Heroes again and the app would not even show up in dock. It simply would not run. All other apps seemed to work fine.
I rebooted again and this time I got another blue screen. Again, but this time I got the grey screen with the apple symbol and the spinning wheel. I've never gotten past this screen again.
I have boot camp so I tried to boot into windows. Windows booting was successful. After that I rebooted and attempted to use the advice from this thread for help: [URl] I tried the single user mode fix first. I got the message:
/dev/rdisk0s2 Root file system Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume Checking Extents Overflow file. Checking Catalog file.
Incorrect block count for file temp3271201 (it should be 8 instead of 0) Keys out of order (4, 966)
Rebuilding Catalog B-Tree. The volume Ben's Computer could not be repaired.
FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED
After that I tried to reset PRAM. Still the grey apple with the spinning wheel. I tried the single user start up again. Again failed.
After that I tried booting into safe mode. Using these steps: [URL] Unfortunately, NONE of these ways would let me boot into safe mode. Both left me at the same grey apple icon and spinning grey wheel.
I would appreciate help SO much. Even if the only fix is to get a new computer any advice would help me. If I need to somehow reformat or such then if anyone might know how I could backup my settings and applications with this impediment.
