Impact: Remote iChat participants can send "links" that can start local programs if clicked Description: A remote iChat participant can send a "link" that references a program on the local system. If the "link" is activated by clicking on it, and the "link" points to a local program, then the program will run. iChat has been modified so that "links" of this type will open a Finder window that displays the program instead of running it. Credit to for reporting this issue. Availability: This update is available for the following iChat versions: - iChat AV v2.1 (Mac OS X 10.3 or later) - iChat AV v2.0 (Mac OS X 10.2.8) - iChat 1.0.1 (Mac OS X 10.2.8)
