Apple Rolls Out Updated Snow Leopard Security Fix

| News

Apple released Security Update 2012-001 version 1.1 late on Friday for Snow Leopard users. The new version of security update replaces the one Apple released on Wednesday, and the cryptic release notes only state that it is “recommended for all users and improves the security of Mac OS X,” although it seems likely it actually fixes odd errors some Snow Leopard users were experiencing after installing the version.

The update may also address a problem PowerPC-based Mac users encountered when their apps that require Rosetta to run stopped working, although The Mac Observer hasn’t had a chance yet to test that in our labs.

Security Update 2012-001 version 1.1 is free and requires Mac OS X 10.6.8. It’s available via the Software Update application and should be available as a downloadable installer at the Apple Support website soon.
