Apple Releases Security Updates for Leopard Users
Monday, May 14, 2012
Posted by: Staff

Apple today released a pair or security updates for Leopard users. This includes the Leopard Security Update 2012-003, which disables versions of Adobe Flash Player that do not include the latest security updates and provides an option to get the current version from Adobe's website. As well as the Flashback Removal Security Update. This update removes the most common variants of the Flashback malware out there. So, you definitely need to go grab both of them now if you're still a user.

It's good to see them release updates for Leopard, but I can't imagine anyone still wanting to run it on an Intel-based Mac.

You're talking about if you have a PPC-based Mac, right? Please explain.

adobe flash player 9 is the last version that works with leopard powerpc version if you install this update and it removes the older version of flash player you will have no flash player then because flash player 10 and 11 only work on intel macintosh computers

Not at all correct. Flash was developed for PowerPC until version 10.1. Funny how you state something totally incorrect as if it's fact.

Anyway.. this update from Apple is Intel only. Even though Leopard runs on many PowerPC systems they left us RISC pushers behind. I don't get why they can still code a PowerPC iTunes yet cannot add PowerPC code to a security update for the last OS that supports it. Silly apes.

I'll tell you why. You can't make money from security updates like you can from the iTMS. Wink
