Apple published eight patches for vulnerabilities in QuickTime for Windows and Mac OS X.

FrSIRT (French Security Incident Response Team) rated all the holes as "critical". All 8 flaws affected Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000. Seven of them affected Mac OS X version 10.3.9 and later.

The vulnerabilities target the way QuickTime handles files. Specially-crafted files allows attacker to crash the application, then remotely install and execute malicious software. "If you use QuickTime I would definitely recommend that you install the update as soon as possible" said Bojan Zdrnja from SANS.


Reports like this one gives me more confirmation that QuickTime and other softwares I've uninstalled, was for a very good reason, and the proof keeps on coming out. All the basic programs: QuickTime, Windows Media Player, iTunes, and RealPlayer.... are all banned products on my computers.
