Apple Posts Security Update 2007-004 v1.1, Quicktime 7.1.6 and Airport Update

Apple has posted version 1.1 of their 2007-004 update released earlier this month. The new update corrects some bugs introduced in the first update (note: only affects very specific versions of Mac OS X, seen notes):

AirPort
Available for: Mac OS X v10.3.9
This update corrects an issue where the AirPort connection may be lost after waking from sleep. This issue only affects Mac OS X v10.3.9 with Security Update 2007-004.
FTPServer
Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.4.9
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.

In addition, Apple posted Quicktime 7.1.6 updates for Mac and Windows which address a recently discovered security hole:

QuickTime 7.1.6 delivers numerous bug fixes, addresses a critical security issue with QuickTime for Java and includes support for:
- Final Cut Studio 2
- Timecode and closed captioning display in QuickTime Player

This Quicktime update fixes the browser exploit discovered in the $10,000 MacBook hacking contest that was won 10 days ago.

Finally, Apple also released the Airport Extreme 2007-003 updater, which "is recommended for all Intel-based Macintosh computers and includes compatibility updates for certain third-party access points configured to use WPA or WPA2 security."
