Apple Patches 10 Vulnerabilities in QuickTime

Dan Kaplan writes SC Magazine US:

Apple on Monday released an updated version of its popular QuickTime software.

Version 7.6.2 closes 10 vulnerabilities, all of which could have been exploited to execute arbitrary code, according to an advisory. Attackers would have spread their exploits by persuading users into opening maliciously crafted movie files or images.

Apple on Monday also delivered the latest update to iTunes, according to a second advisory. Version 8.2 patches for one vulnerability, a stack buffer overflow issue that could be exploited if a user visits a malicious website.
