QuickTime Update Patches Serious Security Flaws
Not all of Apple’s recent announcements are for software of the future, at least one update is here today. QuickTime users can grab the latest edition of QuickTime, which, according to Apple’s notes, “improves application compatibility and addresses security issues.”
The Apple support note for the latest version of QuickTime, 7.5, says that the update fixes bugs that open security holes to maliciously crafted PICT image files, QuickTime files and Indeo video files.
The free QuickTime 7.5 update is available via Software Update or direct from Apple’s download page. The update and security patches affect both the Windows and Mac versions of QuickTime.
