BTW this is not the 10.3.4 update, mentioned on SpyMac/Thinksecret, just a patch to 10.3.3. 2004-05-04 12:09 am This update seemed to fix the printer issue that I was having with my Epson CX5400, although it doesn’t appear to been for such 😡 Oh well it works, I’m happy. 2004-05-04 12:37 am Now my ibook’s audio is maxed out every time I restart, everything else seems fine. 2004-05-04 12:43 am I would not notice because I always max mine volume out 🙂 2004-05-04 12:49 am what problem is that? I have that same model and no problems here. 2004-05-04 1:58 am speaking as an OS X user, I care.you think I want buffer overflow attacks to be able to be perpetrated on my system? remote root exploits?(not that there are any)security is a lot more than virus protection. a vulnerability on OS X is just as bad as one on windows, and if I had something some one wanted on my Box, you can bet that some one would try to get in. 2004-05-04 10:46 am > remote root exploits?(not that there are any)There is a remote root exploit in AFS (not turned on by default, but it’s running if you turn on “Personal File Sharing”):http://www.atstake.com/research/advisories/2004/a050304-1.txt 2004-05-04 2:00 pm http://macslash.org/comments.pl?sid=4485&cid=72061 specialy: http://www.wuergler.dk/holes1.jpgYes i know its not the topic, sorry. 2004-05-04 3:24 pm Since I installed that update, I have iTunes crashing anytime I double click in it, or when I change station, or when I try to listen to certain stations. It has just crashed about 10 times in the last 5 mn! 2004-05-04 5:32 pm remove your haxies.itunes runs fine for me 2004-05-04 7:09 pm Thanks. Just disabling and re-enabling them and everything works. That’s curious.
