Security Updates for iTunes, QuickTime
Apple has issued updates to fix security issues in its QuickTime media player and iTunes software. Updates are available for both Mac and Windows versions of both programs.
The QuickTime patch brings the program to version 7.6.2, and plugs at least 10 security holes, including two that are specific to the Windows version of QuickTime. The iTunes update, version 8.2, fixes a single yet critical flaw in iTunes that could let a malicious Web site use the program to install software on the user's system.
Apple users can grab the updates from Software Update. Windows users will need to use the bundled Apple Software Update program to fetch these.
