Apple has released an update to GarageBand that fixes a design flaw that could compromise your Internet security and privacy settings.
Here's how Apple describes the problem:
When GarageBand is opened, Safari’s preferences are changed to always accept cookies. The default preference is to accept cookies only for the sites being visited. The altered setting may allow third parties and advertisers to track a user’s web activity. This update addresses the issue by not changing the preference setting. Users who have run previous versions of GarageBand should confirm that their Safari preferences are set as desired.

this update is only for garageband 09 - the older versions do not get an update - maybe the flaw is only in the new version. anyways what has a daw to do with the browser? what function is in a daw that needs a browser? updates for plugins could be nice or direct upload to soundcloud or something alike. i would have expected something like this from microsoft who never really made a difference between explorer and internet explorer but on the mac we have the finder and safari who are totally different.
