OS X Lion Security Update

10.7.5
20 September 2012

Current update for Apple's Mac operating system.

Overview

Apple OS X Lion is built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, engineered to take full advantage of the technologies in every new Mac, and designed to deliver the most intuitive and integrated computer experience possible.

Hardware and software made for each other. Since the software on every Mac is created by the same company that makes the Mac, you get a fully integrated system in which everything works together perfectly. OS X works with the processor architecture in your Mac to deliver the best possible performance. Mac notebooks include a Multi-Touch trackpad that lets you pinch, swipe, and tap your way through every app on the system. OS X gives you long battery life by dimming the screen in low-light conditions and even regulating processor activity between keystrokes.

Easy to use and incredibly powerful. From the desktop you see when you start up your Mac to the applications you use every day, everything is designed with simplicity and elegance in mind. So getting things done is both intuitive and fun. Of course, making amazing things simple takes seriously advanced technologies, and OS X is loaded with them. Not only is it built on a rock-solid, time-tested UNIX foundation that provides unparalleled stability, it also delivers incredible performance, stunning graphics, and industry-leading support for Internet standards.

Secure by design. OS X doesn't get PC viruses. And with virtually no effort on your part, the operating system protects itself from other malicious applications. Because every Mac ships with a secure configuration, you don't have to worry about changing complex settings in order to stay safe. Even better, OS X won't slow you down with constant security alerts and sweeps. Apple responds quickly to online threats and automatically delivers security updates. And with FileVault 2 in OS X Lion, all the data on your Mac is protected by powerful encryption.

Built for compatibility. The versatility and power of OS X help a Mac fit in just about anywhere--including Windows networks. Want to transfer your files, photos, and other data from a Windows PC? OS X lets you do that easily. If you want to run Windows on your Mac, you can do that, too. OS X has built-in support for the latest version of Microsoft Exchange Server, so you can use your Mac at home and at work and keep all your messages, meetings, and contacts in one place. OS X works with virtually all of today's digital cameras, printers, and other peripherals without the need to manually download separate drivers. And it opens popular file types such as JPG, MP3, and PDF, as well as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.

Accessible innovation. OS X comes standard with a wide range of assistive technologies that help people with disabilities experience what the Mac has to offer, including many features you won't find in other operating systems

This is the worst version of Mac OS X to date. First off they removed support for the Apple USB Modem by simply not writing a 64-bit wrapper for the 32-bit driver. I paid $50 for it a couple years ago and now it's worthless. They also removed iSync. This is a blatant move to make it harder to sync any phone with Lion than an Apple phone. The application still works if you move it from Snow Leo to Lion so there is absolutely no other reason for this. Autosave and versions are implemented terribly. There is good versioning software out there and Apple should have copied what works instead of writing this steaming pile and then giving me no controls to disable it. Apple thinks they know what's best for me so I have to do it there way or hit the highway. Apple's answer to the no longer included Samba, the netbiosd daemon, is a complete disaster. Windows file sharing is now completely broken. This daemon runs all the time weather I initiate any kind of SMB service or not and if you have Little Snitch installed and use a public wifi it will drive you insane. Thank god I did a clean install on an external hard drive rather than installing over Snow Leo on my internal. It was easy to revert back to SL. I have sent Apple more feedback over this release of OS X than I have cumulatively previous to trying to use Lion. I don't care about Launchbad and gestures I can take it or leave it but this "update" takes control from the user and I will not tolerate that. This may be my last version of OS X, and my last Mac, after being a dedicated user since the 80s. Windows is just not that bad of an alternative anymore. In summary, Lion is a disaster. Give me back my Mac, if I want an iPhone or iPad I'll go buy one!

"According to Web metrics firm Net Applications, Snow Leopard accounted for 27% of all copies of OS X used to access the Internet in March. The 2009 operating system has resisted retirement, and in fact powered more Macs last month than OS X Lion, its 2011 successor." http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9236569/OS_X_Snow_Leopard_stubbornly_rejects_retirement What does this fact say about the quality of Lion? I finally downgraded to Snow Leopard. Had to replace or abandon only 2 of my carefully selected apps that I had upgraded to full Lion compatibility. All serious stability issues disappeared, indicating it was not caused by hardware.

I am experiencing this too. Well, I am surprised no answers to these issues. I stopped using TimeMachine because is hanging for hours. Spotlight is a pain in the back since is slowing down the machine because it is always indexing... weeks to finish! I tried to restart spotlight several times unsuccessfully and I really need doc/mail search very often.. Hope some answer will come soon!

Only a fool uses Time Machine anyway. Get a real backup app like QRecall or similar.

10.7.5 Combo updater has messed up up all 3 iMac 3.4GHZ i7 SSD 16GB Ram I upgraded from 10.7.4. -The worse nightmare of all: Spotlight has become DEAD slow to index main boot SSD with only 45gb used 203 free, it shows 3 days with 10.7.4 it was doing it in less than 10 minutes. I killed and relaunched spotlight, cleared old index, set only Boot drive marking all other drive including Timemachine with PRIVACY and tried most of the trick, same issue on the 3 computers I can't fix it. (Reset PRAM,Repair Perm run Diskwarrior, Reapplied 1075 combo) Therefore Timemachine is also now veryslow when Spotlight is trying to index the main drive (even after excluding all drive and timemachine via Privacy) - In the dock all shortcuts for folders and file from my NAS are becoming faceless with a question mark after each restart. Clicking on them re-activate the icon until the next restart. (DiskStation DS212+ Synology connected via AFP), Synology might have to update their software, I guess. - Fast User Switching is activated by default top right of menu bar, it can be cleared via User& Group, clicking on Login Option and deslecting Show fast user switching menu.

Vvaves, have you tried enabling TRIM on your SSD using a tool like Chameleon? http://macupdate.com/app/mac/43656/chameleon-ssd-optimizer If so, it almost always gets disabled after a big software update, which might be the cause of your slow downs.

Hi Ryan Thanks for your suggestion, do not hesitate to correct me if I am wrong. My 3 imacs have Apple SSD TS256C= 251GB when I check in about this mac, TRIM support = YES in Hardware report so I guess Trim is active so no need for Chamleon which I guess can enable TRIM on non Apple-branded only ? I have now also updated a 4th imac which does not have an SSD and I ahve the same issue after resetting spotlight

Is it me or 10.7.5 did NOT deliver for us stuck on older hardware...Let me elaborate. First off Finder issues that have been plauging the system since 10.7.0 namely the inabilty to zoom list-view mode windows properly and "automatic" column sizing in double clicking the appropriate boundary between name and size columns for example are just to name few of the ones that stand out. These may be small nuisances at first glance, but things like these made OSX what it is today...elegance and attention to detail. Then there's the HUGE performance drop when it comes to GRAPHICS performance and specifically to openGL. I've tested this on 2 different systems separated by more than 5 years, a MacBookPro2,2 (C2D 2.33 15.4''), as well as an iMac11,1 (i5 4cores 2.66 27'') only to find out that both NovaBench and OpenGL extensions viewer yield substantially lower results in the graphics sector which is also apparent during the tests (i.e. lower fps counters and all)..I've not gone into extensive benchmarking using game's timedemos and all, but still this is indicative of the trend Apple's unfortunately chose to go towards... For the time being i feel let down by this.

That's Avids fault and your own fault, not Apples. Why are you upgrading the OS without verifying that your major apps support the new version?
