And of course, Apple reserves the right to brick your computer if you use Kaspersky's removal tool if you need to prevent losing your hard work ahead of Apple's release schedule for their fix as it's a violation of their T&C's.

Huh? How does using Kaspersky violate Apple's license? There are several OS X anti-virus programs available for users today and none of them are made by Apple.

Nope, didn't notice. Often, all things "Apple" get made into "Applesauce" via the hate and envy comments. So, it is hard to distinguish a "serious" comment from a "humorous" comment.

So if you are on 10.5 or earlier Apple's advice to you, rather than just use Kaspersky's already available fix, is to disable Java.

Thanks guys. Perhaps for your next trick, may you suggest just not using your computer entirely?

It's par for the course sadly. If you recall, there were several security flaws in NT 4 and 9x that Microsoft refused to fix due to the products being EOL.

I used to be a major Apple fan and was seriously considering buying one of their desktops, owned an ipod, and used to use itunes on a daily basis to purchase music online, and then I started running into all the Apple snags that they don't show on the pretty TV commercials.

...and then I did something I could never do with a Mac with a PC. Built one!

How old was windows 9x and NT 4.0 when Microsoft refused to fix those issues. Three years back, all Apple computers still came with Mac OS X 10.5.
