I was going to skip over 10.6.3 because there were no security updates. Looks like it's time to do a full back-up then install 10.6.3 all with this update. None of the other 10.6.3 updates were of any benefit to me, but I don't want to compromise security.

Thanks for the post.

I think it's strange this wasn't rolled into 10.6.3. I wonder if this shows up for the people with 10.6.3 v1.1? Oh well, no biggie. Who doesn't like restarting for a 6.5MB update? Rolling Eyes

Just out of curiosity, has there ever been an update they DIDN'T recommend for all their users?

Somebody found over 20 security holes in SL; this update fixes at least one of them.
