Apple Patches QuickTime, iPhone and iPod Security Holes
Apple is pushing out patches to plug a number of security holes in the iPhone, iPod touch and its QuickTime media player.
The QuickTime update fixes at least four security flaws found in both Mac OS X (including Leopard, OS X 10.5) and Windows versions of the software. Windows users can grab the latest version using the bundled Apple Software Update application, or from Apple Downloads. Mac users can fetch the updates using the built in Software Update feature.
The iPhone/iPod touch update fixes three vulnerabilities present in both devices. The update can only be installed through iTunes, which is supposed to notify users automatically when updates are available for those devices. See Apple's security advisory for more details.
