Well, here’s an unexpected wrinkle in the “MacDefender” malware saga: Apple just pushed out a small Snow Leopard security update to squash the malfeasant, which was widely expected to be addressed in a forthcoming Mac OS X 10.6.8 update.
Software updates! Who doesn’t love ‘em? If you’re having issues with iPhoto or even with OpenType fonts under Snow Leopard 10.6.7, Apple has a pair of updates waiting to make your day -- provided that you download them first, of course.
While there hasn’t been much digital ink on the subject, apparently iPhoto ’11 has been giving nothing but grief to Mac users with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics cards. But relief appears at hand, simply by installing this week’s Mac OS X 10.6.7 update.
To the Batcave! Er, make that Software Update! On Monday afternoon, Apple pushed out the seventh update to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard which offers the usual “stability, compatibility and security” -- including a separate security update that’s not part of the 10.6.7 package.
