10.3.9 and Java Glitch
News.com reports on a problem that has hit many Mac OS X 10.3.9 users.
Mac OS X 10.3.9 brought unexpected quits/restarts from Safari as well as standalone Java Applications.
For those who are affected, Apple said the problem can be fixed by reinstalling two earlier security patches: Java 1.4.2 Update 2 and Security Update 2005-002.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based company also offered up a test that people can do to see if their systems are affected. Customers should open the terminal program and type "java -version" (without quotes) and then hit return, it said. Computers affected by the issue will get the message "Segmentation fault."
