Apple Patches Quicktime Flaw For Vista, Mac OS X

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 0 comment

Cupertino (CA) - Apple has released an update for Quicktime to fix a potentially dangerous flaw that affects most versions of Mac OS X and Windows Vista, as well as Windows XP Service Pack 2.

The software update, Quicktime version 7.4.1, closes a security hole that makes it possible to attackers to manipulate arbitrary code execution through the program’s handling of a specific kind of Internet address.

Specifically, the vulnerability deals with a gap in the security measures of Quicktime’s RTSP tunneling. The flaw affects Mac OS X versions 10.3.9, 10.4.7, 10.5, or later, as well as Windows Vista and XP SP2.

The update is available at Quicktime.com and can also be accessed directly through the Quicktime player software.
