Apple Posts Version 2.0 Of June Security Update To Fix Login Problem

Apple has posted a newer version of the June security update we reported last week. According to an Apple Knowledge Base (KBase) article, some users encountered login problems after installing the 1.0 version of the security update, and version 2.0 corrects that problem. First, the description of the update, which is word-for-word the same as it was last week:

Security Update 2003-06-09 addresses a potential security issue when the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) is used to reshare a Network File System (NFS) mount. This update also addresses a situation where LDAP bind authentication requests may be improperly sent when using Kerberos authentication.

Second, in case you are one of the people who has had difficulty with the pervious update, here is the KBase articleis description of the problem that happened with the earlier version, and the solution:
