OS X :: Latest Security Update Buggy - SSL Certificates?
Sep 29, 2010
Software Update just prompted me with an update for iTunes and a Security Update without thinking about it since they are apple updates I did them. After restarting every single application that utilizes a SSL certificate from Keychain is prompting me saying that the SSL Certificate has an invalid issuer. This includes SSL certificates from Apple themselves ( mobile me, apple.com etc.. ). Anyone else having this issue or is it just my computer being massively screwy?
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.
Moderator Note: Thread closed at request of original poster, who has made another post with more detail on this issue here. Warning: All working fine the last month until security update 3-18-08 totally wrecked system - cannot boot - recommend cloning to separate disk before attempting. Never had this occur with mac update. Many times with Windows.
I have just installed the latest securtiy update, clicked restart and normal shut down, start up ok, apple in middle of the screen and then the sun burst icon just spins and spins nothing further than that. have tried restarting several times but it always stops in the same place. It's had a half hour to think about this now and nothing, so off to mac doctor tomorrow. [URL:...]
after install, only get the spinning card- no startup. tried all startup key combinations and zapped PRAM. also ran disc utility and hardware check- hardware is fine all I get is nothing. noticed others reporting problems with the update on another thread, but my mac won't even start up. do not want to have to reinstall OS and 3rd party apps. any suggestions? would it help to take to apple store geniuses- can they somehow bypass the update and get it started up?
At least once every day a box pops up that says Safari can't verify the identity of Facebook.com or Twitter.com. I click OK or adjust it so say "Always Trust" and then Facebook.com goes blank. The blank page will say access denied, page cannot be found, etc. etc.
All the fixes I've found online seem to be Windows-based and suggest making sure the clock/time is accurate. Mine has always been up to date so that's not an option for me. I've also disabled pop-ups as per a suggestion and that didn't do anything.†So if there's any Mac users with knowledge of security certificates, it'd be a huge help.

I went out and got the new Nano 16g and had to install the latest version of itunes to get it to work. No problem, everything was working fine for a couple of days. I tried to browse the itunes store today, but it wouldn't work and a message stating that I need the latest version of Safari to access the itunes store.
I tried to download Safari but it wouldn't work, because apparently, I need the latest security update before I can get Safari to download. I have tried to get the Security to download a few times now and a message stating "Security won't download to your computer". This has become frustrating and I am limited with my mac skills and computer skills in general.
I have the older 10.4.11 core 2 duo osx. I think I am choosing the appropriate software options. (Tiger) I have enough memory left on my computer as well.
Can't print from Appleworks after installing latest Security Upgrade and latest Brother printer software.¬† Other apps seem to be OK.¬† Appleworks crashes when it tries to bring up the print dialog box.

Updated to latest security download and now MacBookPro cannot connect to wireless router.iPad works on the router and MacbookPro works on other wifi networks, but it will nolonger work with the actual wireless router that I used to download the latest security software? Is there some security issue I need to address? There is no security/password on this wireless router.
Yesterday Apple released Safari 5.0.1 and Magic Trackpad and Multi-Touch Trackpad Update 1.0, but Software Update on my Mac makes me able to download only the first one (Safari 5.0.1) - which I did. Why can't it find the Multi-Touch Trackpad Update?
- My MacBook is fine (it's 13-inch, Mid 2009).
- My OS is fine (Mac OS X v10.6.4).
Sure, I can download it manually, BUT it makes me really annoyed if something on my Mac works not as good as it should.
I just downloaded the latest update to Parallels. I shut down Parallels before running the update, and I even did a reboot of the computer.And yet every time I run the update program it keeps telling me to "shut down these running and suspended virtual machines" and refers to "My Boot Camp"Like I said, I rebooted the computer first. There are no virtual machines running. Zero, zilch, nada. So why in the ******* is Parallels telling me that there is? "My Boot Camp" isn't even a VM that I use
I have a Macbook pro with PGP whole disk encryption and Snow Leopard and ran the latest OSX 10.6.5 update. During the reboot the mac would just hang at the gray screen indefinitely. I rebooted using the "cmd + S" key sequence and saw that the error where it was hanging stated "Still waiting for root device". Attempting to repair the hard drive using Disk utility off of the install CD failed, as well as attempts to rebuild the drive using Disk Warrior 4.2. I even went to a local Apple Store and the techs there didn't have a solution other than doing a re-install of OSX. At this point I was ready to cut my losses and erase the drive and do a fresh install. I'M GLAD I DIDN'T. I don't know why I didn't do this first but I went to PGP's website to download their recovery CD to try it and found an article that stated there was a known issue with PGP WDE and the latest 10.6.5 update. I followed the recovery procedures laid out here: [URL:...] and was able to boot up just fine.
I decided to install all the latest updates last night on my Macbook and it seems now that the fan is constantly on... I think the latest update was 10.5 (anyway whatever the latest one was). I have gone into the activity app and everything seems to be fine there, in fact the top thing running was the activity app itself. I am used to the fan cutting in when I am watching a movie etc but something seems to be up.
Ran the update from the Apple Update, which included iLife update and some other minor updates to the airport. Now the thing takes about 6 mnutes to boot up and once booted up, it will not respond in any meaningful way. Endless beachballs abound! I've tried zapping the PRAM, but no luck.
I'm selling my macbook pro, going to do a fresh format before that. But my mac install disk comes with 10.5.6 I want to update it to latest 10.5.8, in order to do that I need to log in an account to perform the update but for that the buyer will not experience the leopard first start up music. How can I update it without creating an account so the buyer can feel like getting a first hand on it?
I've got a Macbook with with Leopard v10.5-something installed. When I installed the latest update and was at about 25% done with the "writing"-part it suddenly failed. I got a message prompting to restart (I think it said that it was something wrong with the source from which it was writing), when I restart the computer I get another message promting me to restart. My backup is a few months old, so I wonder if there is some way around my problem?
I don't now if its a coincidence in that its my system, tho', safari seems alright. But the latest update (and flash as well) with firefox well now the browser if very laggy in responsiveness. Anytime I do something scroll delete a tab pull down menu type something whatever. it lags a couple seconds before engaging
Yesterday, iTunes installed an update to 10.6.3, and since then freezes less than a minute after launch. The beachball just spins and iTunes is completely unresponsive. It is usually downloading a new podcast at the time, but that is simply because that's the first thing iTunes does if I'm not syncing. ¬†
I tried restarting. I tried restarting in Safe Mode. I tried restarting without anything connected to any ports. I tried uninstalling iTunes, restarting, installing a new download from apple website, and restarting again. ¬†
I'm not sure what to do next..Everything was working fine up the the moment the upgrade finished. ¬†
I'm running a fairly new Macbook Air running OSX 10.7.4 with all software updated.

I tried to download the sofware update for itunes 10.6.3 for my MacBook Pro, but as soon as the download begins, it stops and I get an error message saying: "The update 'iTunes' can't be installed", and also "The update could not be verified..." and so on. How can I get the software update to download then?
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.

I just received a Security Update notification and because of all the recent hoo-ha about malware/Adobe Flash Player, I'm unsure about downloading these two items. This is mainly because I've not received these before:¬†
I'm getting a prompt to install the latest update for OSX and Safari. Can download it okay but when it gets to 'configuring' it stalls. Not doing anything. I have to hold the power button down to shut down then start the system up again. This has happened three times. Anyone else have this? Anyone know what is up with it?
