Updates Plug iPhone, QuickTime Security Holes
Apple has shipped a security update to fix multiple vulnerabilities in the iPhone and iPod Touch. The company also pushed out a patch to plug security holes in Windows and Mac versions of its QuickTime media player.
The iPhone update -- version 3.1 -- includes at least 10 security fixes, and several minor new features, such as the ability to better organize apps in iTunes and to download ring tones wirelessly. Apple also issued an update for its iPod Touch (v. 3.1.1) that includes a short list of new features.
The QuickTime update brings that software to version 7.6.4 and fixes at least four separate security problems. Apple users can grab the update via Software Update, while Windows users will need to use the bundled Apple Software Updates application. The iPhone and iPod Touch updates are only available through iTunes.
