Hi sean. Yes I have java enabled. Not sure the site to be honest, I just got the warning from Little Snitch. I know for a fact I didn't run anything out of the ordinary or web related and I didn't use software update.
> I have used macs for a long time and don't seem to get these problems that people scream and shout about every year or so.
I don't either Sean, but your claim that it's because of how secure the OS is just isn't true when experts almost unanimously say the opposite. The difference is that people don't exploit the holes in OsX, which is a huge advantage to using it!
> I am only running snow leopard as I find lion to be a pain in the a*** and I don't have software update turned on so I do not have the latest of whatever apple are offering in the way of security updates (I have a very slow broadband as I live on the edge of the world so I cannot be bothered downloading a constant stream of anything let alone security updates).
There's some pretty good updates on software update too which can improve performance and fix other issues so maybe give it a go! Out of interest, what are your issues with Lion? I have to say it's (for me) the first version of OsX where I'm (almost) totally content with and I no longer miss Windows features. And that is a pretty amazing thing for me to say.
