Software Update update

Apple fixed the potentional security hole in Software Update yesterday. This problem was only announced/discovered/revealed this week, and it was fixed within 72 hours of info on it hitting the web. Whether Apple had some folks pull a trip to Australia (obscure Microserfs reference) or whether they were already working on it and pushed it on out the door, they deserve a hat tip. Apple seems to be pretty much firing on all cylinders these days. Not bad considering that they were on the ropes (even by this Mac addict’s judgment) until Chairman Steve came home.

Cool: in addition to plugging the security hole, you can now use Software update from the command line. Try man softwareupdate for details.
