Well this one seems to effect most of us. I use DHCP as I'm sure most other home users do.

Actually after reading the Apple bulletin, the DHCP fix is for a vulnerability in bootpd, which would be if you manually configured your Mac to be a bootp server. The bootp daemon is not turned on by default.

However, there are several fixes that should be of concern to anyone who surfs the web.
- ImageIO
- LaunchServices
- WebKit

I had some trouble with my Logitech bluetooth mouse after the restart, but it seems to be working fine now.

My update went smoothly. I'm always surprised with how much faster Safari feels right after these updates. Then 2-3 days later it gets to feeling a little pokey. Confused

I just emptied my system and user caches for the first time and it's now MUCH MUCH FASTER!

I didn't know about that bit of maintenance until now.
