This update includes a major security fix so I’d go get it now…
The fix is a nasty issue that left your passwords stored in plain text on the hard drive; a definite “no no” for secure operating systems. I’d just go through and update everything that pops up in Software Update as most of them are crucial to your applications and system’s performance.
Like I said, just click on the Apple logo in the top-left corner on the top bar of your Mac and click Software Update. From there go ahead and download/install the updates.
The OS X Lion v10.7.4 Update includes fixes that:
- Resolve an issue in which the “Reopen windows when logging back in” setting is always enabled.
- Improve compatibility with certain British third-party USB keyboards.
- Addresses permission issues that may be caused if you use the Get Info inspector function “Apply to enclosed items…” on your home directory. For more information, see this article.
- Improve Internet sharing of PPPoE connections.
- Improve using a proxy auto-configuration (PAC) file.
- Address an issue that may prevent files from being saved to an SMB server.
- Improve printing to an SMB print queue.
- Improve performance when connecting to a WebDAV server.
- Enable automatic login for NIS accounts.
- Include RAW image compatibility for additional digital cameras.
- Improve the reliability of binding and logging into Active Directory accounts.
