With the release of Mac OS X 10.5.7 Wednesday, Apple appears to have acknowledged a raft of security issues surrounding its operating system. The latest updated version of the Mac operating system addresses bugs, improves support, and contains 47 security fixes, by the count of security software vendor Intego. The package includes updates to the OS, core graphics and the iChat video chat client, as well as to the Safari browser. Apple recommends that users of Mac OS X 10.5, also known as "Leopard," install Mac OS X 10.5.


anti virus folks need the business

With both Windows 7 and Mac 10 software versions including more security features, the anti-virus folks are scrambling for business. With the help of the internet, the anti-virus folks are fast to point out vulnerabilities in each of the systems.

Jump to:
If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
