    I was going to say this was a "potential" problem. And is now no longer.

    They fixed the problem before it was ever exploited.

    I think that's by far better than what MS does.

    Don't expect everything to be perfect out of the box people.

    i personally think it was just a way to test out software update for panther users and get a report of how many people are on panther.. but maybe it was a potential problem

    Well I did a Windows Update today, and actually read through all of the things that were supposedly fixed, and there were so many potential ways a hacker could get into my machine, it wasn't funny. I couldn't believe the stuff I was reading. So I guess Apple with their one update every once in a while is OK.
