SnowleopardApple today released Security Update 2013-001 for Snow Leopard, Snow Leopard Server, Lion and Lion Server users, on the heels of the release of OS X 10.8.3.

The company didn't specify what changes were made, other than saying it was recommended for all users and it improves the security of Mac OS X.

Apple's website that details the contents of security updates has yet to be updated with the fixes that are contained in Security Update 2013-001.

The updates for Snow Leopard, Snow Leopard Server, Lion and Lion Server are available from Apple's Software Update website, or select Software Update in the Apple Menu.

Still in love with 10.6.8 here. Favourite OS of all time by a distance.

Shame they never released an "iCloud" update for 10.6. Gotta keep those new OS X sales numbers up with iCloud only features ;)

Some people will think, I'm still in the past, but I really miss 10.6.8. If some apps would support SL, I would downgrade to the most robust OS of all time. :(

Long may the Snow Leopard updates continue…

My main machine is Mountian Lion most of the time now, but I still have an older machine on SL (and will not be going back to Lion on that one unless I really have to).

And as the order of the day in this thread appears to be mentioning something completely irrelevant… um…. Irrational giraffes wearing shorts, they'd be a strange thing for Apple to sell, wouldn't they?
