Apple Mac OS X update pulled

According to MacMegaSite and MacFixit.com, the latest Apple MAC OS X update has been pulled due to a large number of problems.

If you have not installed the update yet, you will want to hold off until it is re-released. If you have
installed, as I have, you may or may not experience any problems, but be aware that problems do exist.

As far as my own opinion goes, major errors such as this are simply unacceptable. In order to effectively protect our machines against virus and worm attacks, we are told to update machines immediately. If these updates cause major problems themselves, it defeats the entire purpose. Users must be able to trust the updates from operating system manufacturers or they will not patch their machines and therefore leave them self open to further and more damaging attacks.
