Apple Fixes QuickTime Bug

Apple on Thursday released an updated version of its QuickTime media software for Mac OS X and Windows that addresses a security vulnerability and restores compatibility with a third party video program.

QuickTime 7.4.1 addresses a flaw in the way earlier versions of QuickTime handled the Real-Time Streaming Protocol. By enticing a user to visit a maliciously crafted Web page, an attacker may cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.

QuickTime 7.4.1 works with Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X v10.4.9 or later, Mac OS X v10.5 or later, Windows Vista, and Windows XP SP2. It's available through the Software Update control panel or from Apple's Web site.
