As with the OS X Lion Update 10.7.3, Apple also released Security Update 2012-001 for Snow Leopard and Snow Leopard Server users.
This Security Update 2012-001 addresses the same security related issues as in OS X Lion 10.7.3, and it is detailed in this Apple document page.

Apple released Security Update 2012-001 version 1.1 for Snow Leopard users. The release notes only state that it is “recommended for all users and improves the security of Mac OS X,” although it seems likely it actually fixes odd errors some Snow Leopard users were experiencing after installing Security Update 2012-001.

Snow Leopard is the latest Mac OS X that supports PowerPC applications running under built-in Rosetta. There have been reports that many PowerPC apps (running under Rosetta on Snow Leopard) have been crashed unexpectedly after applying Security Update 2012-001. PowerPC-based applications such as Quicken, Filemaker 7, Adobe Photoshop (earlier versions) and Microsoft Office 2004 and X are still popular as not everybody is like (or can afford) to rush to the latest whatsoever version like certain open-source extremists.

Although users may know the story, kudos must be given to the IT team of Westside High School( in our school district), in Omaha, NE.
They addressed the problem, and came up with the fix, which was, eventually, incorporated by the Apple team.
The clue was an error associated with the World of Warcraft computer game.
