Get Safe Downloads List last update time and current version
Authored by: alvarnell on Jun 12, '11 10:15:52PM

Three users have reported completely losing their login.keychain immediately after using this tool to manually update their XProtect defs. I don't see any way that it could directly cause this, it could well be the XProtect process itself, but I am more inclined to think the sudo process when checking for an admin password. It could also be a corrupt keychain and a user who has never issued a sudo command.

In any case I recommend what I understand Apple is telling users who are not getting automatic updates, to uncheck and recheck the "Automatically update safe downloads list" box in the Security Preferences Panel. Rebooting works for some, but not all users.
