Apple Issues GarageBand Security Update

Fixes Design Flaw That Could Compromise Your Internet Security      04/08/09

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.

To apply the fix:

  • Use Software Update to install GarageBand 5.1
  • In Safari, change your Security preferences to "Accept Cookies: Only from sites I visit."
  • Select Preferences, Security, Show Cookies and either Remove All or remove cookies from sites that you do not visit. If you Remove All cookies, Safari may lose your preferences for viewing and logging into Websites.
