Hi Glenn,

It looks as though the Intel/Tiger update is 166MB in size and the PPC/Tiger update is 130MB -- but the Leopard download is only 10.1MB (phew!).

HTH,
John.

Apple has an error on the Security Update 2009-004 for Leopard page. They have the standalone update listed at 166MB, but it's only 10.7MB when you click through to download.



I will correct things now.

Thanks JB!

Edit: They also have the update for Tiger PPC wrong. It weighs in at 76.1MB when you click through.

I don't know how much of a threat this DNS server issue was to the average person on safe sites, but I'm glad to see Apple release a patch so soon.
