    yeah it had to install everything on bootup Since it cant really install it while you're using the System

    Well I cant really tell any difference.. and it must be non visual changes with Safari.. actually it looks like Safari has the same build number.. so it must have just been something to deal with the system that Safari happens to use. *shrug*

    SSH vulnerability fixed...
    From Apple's security email:
    OpenSSH: Mac OS X 10.2.8 contains the patches to address CVE
    CAN-2003-0693, CAN-2003-0695, and CAN-2003-0682. On Mac OS X
    versions prior to 10.2.8, the vulnerability is limited to a denial
    of service from the possibility of causing sshd to crash. Each
    login session has its own sshd, so established connections are
    preserved up to the point where system resources are exhausted by
    an attack.

    To deliver the update in a rapid and reliable manner, only the
    patches for CVE IDs listed above were applied, and not the entire
    set of patches for OpenSSH 3.7.1. Thus, the OpenSSH version in
    Mac OS X 10.2.8, as obtained via the "ssh -V" command, is:
    OpenSSH_3.4p1+CAN-2003-0693, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL
    0x0090609f

    Mac-Dude.. Im going to assume that your computer is off.. this is what you'll need to do:

    1. Boot your computer up while holding down the command key and the 's' key simultaneously. This will put you in single user mode.
    2. Type in 'fsck -y' this will fix any problems.. hopefully
    3. Type in 'mount -uw /' This will mount your hard drive.
    4. Now type 'cd /Library/Receipts/'
    5. Type 'rm MacOSXUpdate10.2.8.pkg'
    6. Type 'softwareupdate'
    7. Hopefully it should show the MacOSXUpdate10.2.8 package.
    8. Install it by typing 'install NAME' NAME is the name of the package.
    9. After it has installed, go ahead and type 'Reboot'

    If you have problems with any of that, please post and we'll try to help you out.

    Cheers!

    Cool
    Normally use the combo updater to update your OS if you missed a revision level. Say you want to get to 10.2.8 from 10.2.5. You would use the OS X 10.2.8 Combo Update to been your system to 10.2.8.

    I have heard of some problems with some systems if you use the regular update, especially if you are missing something.

    So I use the combo updater. Then I run the disk utility application to fix file permissions. After which I don't have any problems. The caveat is I don't alter the OS from the original state. basically i don't use three party application to alter how the basic operating system works.
