– Description: Security Update 2007-004 applied an incorrect ftp configuration file for Mac OS X Server v10.4.9 systems. Users with ftp access, who would normally be restricted to certain directories, may be able to access directories outside the normal scope. This update addresses the issue by restoring the correct version of the ftp configuration file. This issue only affects Mac OS X Server v10.4.9 with Security Update 2007-004.

Mac OS X 10.4.9 (client) and Mac OS X Server 10.3.9 systems that have installed Security Update 2007-004 do not require Security Update 2007-004 v1.1. If the security update has not yet been installed on these systems, then they should be updated using Security Update 2007-004 v1.1.

  3. blog
    a Web site on which an individual or group of users, often made up of commentators who hide behind anonymous pseudonyms that produces an ongoing narrative, made up entirely of extremist opinions, personal verbal attacks, and various other insulting statements for the intent of making money through advertising for the web-site owners, and providing an outlet for aggression by socially inept troglodytes, nerds and other malcontents who cannot interface with the human race on a real basis

  4. “Ooops, that’s a bit embarrassing that the original security update 2007-004 created a security hole in the FTP server on OS X Server.”

    There are no security holes in Mac OS X. These supposed “updates” are the work of Microsoft and are sent out simply to discredit Apple.
