Well run software update, Apple has put out a couple of updates for 10.9 and 10.4.2
Updated components to 10.3.9 include:

Componets Updated in 10.4.2 include:

Changes have been made to the Mail program which include a fix that prevents unencrypted responses from being generated by auto-reply rules applied to encrypted messages.

QuickDraw Manager has been updated to prevent a problem that could cause arbitrary code to be executed by a maliciously crafted PICT image.

Following a careful update pattern helps prevent problems from coming up. MacFixit has a good one:

1)Disconnect any FireWire/USB devices before applying Mac OS X updates in 10.4, then re-connect the devices one by one after the update process is complete and the system has restarted.

2)Boot from the OS X Install CD and run Disk Utility's Repair Disk function (or use a third-party drive utility such as DiskWarrior or TechTool Pro).

3)When booted from the volume containing Mac OS X, run Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions function.

4)Install the update.

5)After rebooting, again run Repair Disk Permissions.

WoW plaque?
It seems a A deadly virtual plague has broken out in the online game World of Warcraft.
Although limited to only a few of the game's servers the numbers of characters that have fallen victim is thought to be in the thousands.

Originally it was thought that the deadly digital disease was the result of a programming bug in a location only recently added to the Warcraft game.
