I had meant installing it (Bonjour) on Windows; not on their own OS.

The only time something should be installed (via ASU) is if you already had it installed, not a blanket install.

Sorry, but this still rubs me the wrong way, just as the Safari install did.

All,
A great way to install nmap is via macports.org... There is also a GUI version for macports at apple: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/unix_open_source/portauthority.htm

Bonjour has been around for quite a while. Originally called Rendezvous, it came out with OS X 10.2 - circa 2002.

And nmap (http://nmap.org) can scan any computer on a network to determine which services and ports respond. It can scan a single computer, or an entire network.

This is such a BAD idea that it is crazy. Apple really needs to get a clue about what you should use Apple Software Update for; i.e. NOT installing new software. First it was Safari, and now a service that allows someone, anyone, to determine the services that a computer has running?!?!?!?!

At some point Apple's software will become a HUGE problem, ala Nachi, Sasser, Blaster, etc gets a hold of it. I'm really starting to dislike their business practices with ASU....

This is such a BAD idea that it is crazy. Apple really needs to get a clue

software. First it was Safari, and now a service that allows someone, anyone,
