Update on Apple fix
A number of readers wrote in to let us know that we had reported two updates for Apple, one for the Quicktime bug, and another Security Update.  When users clicked on Software Update, they only got the Quicktime patch.  From the Apple webstie describing the security update, it is indicated that Security Update 2007-004 v1.1 is just an updated patch to 2007-004.  If users already had that patch installed, there was no need to install the new one.  Read the official verbiage below:

"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."
