US-Cert advises all users of Apple Quicktime to install a new version (7.1) which addresses mutliple vulnerabilites; these vulnerabilites might permit a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition if a user could be convinced "to access a specially crafted image or media file using a vulnerable version of QuickTime."

The stand-alone Quicktime Player 7.1 for Windows or Mac OSX can be downloaded here:

Is it just me, or has Quicktime been having a lot of security issues lately? When I updated my Quicktime a month of so ago, it was because of another security flaw.

Anyway, thanks for the info, and the link for the standalone player. (death to iTunes!!!! :thumbsup: )
