New exploit! - Fixed by "Apple security update 7-6-2004"

  1. Click here to mount a disk image. Or try this if you have disabled the disk schema, or installed the security update. Or try this if the three previous doesn't work (versions before 1.2 of the Paranoid Android should allow this).
  2. Wait a couple of seconds...
  3. Click here to execute the (harmless) script inside. - If you have a version of the Paranoid Android before version 1.2 then click here (note that this only works if iTunes isn't running). This should also work with the Paranoid Android version 1.1 (if you haven't installed ShapeShifter).
Note that a real exploit would do steps 1 through 3 automagically, possibly without you knowing about it.


Fix: Install the security update from Apple for either Panther or Jaguar (also found in Software Update).
