I just discovered a Leopard Security Update 2012-003 in reading an article in MacWorld, but when I checked my computer, I found that I did not get it through Software Updates' check for updates. Is there something wrong with my Software Updates? Or is just that this must be manually downloaded by the user? My iMac is an Intel Mac.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Hello Laura,

     

    Could you have SWUPD set to automattically get updates?

     

    Check Library>Reciepts at root of the drive, nit your user Library, & see if it's been installed.

     

    Also, if this is a PPC iMac it only was for Intel iMacs, since PPCs weren't able to get that FlashBack infection for one thing.

     

    If Intel, you coild always get it directly & re-apply it...

    An easy way to see if it was automatically installed is open System Preferences->Software Updates->Installed Updates tab and see if it's listed there.

    I understand your concern, but it should be perfectly safe to download it directly from Apple & install it, even if it has already been installed.
