As if the grief that has been plaguing early adopters of Leopard wasn’t bad enough, now Quicktime has run into some serious problems as well.  The Inquirer has a link to upgrade to the newest version which will do the job of plugging the holes that are currently wide open.

“IT’S NOT Apple’s best week, it seems. Multiple security flaws have been discovered in its Quicktime media player implementation, this just after serious bugs surfaced in its latest Mac OS/X 10.5, aka Leopard.

Apple’s advisory is rated Highly Critical. It lists seven separate vulnerabilities in Quicktime versions prior to 7.3 that can expose sensitive information. A successful exploit reportedly can permit the execution of arbitrary code, potentially enabling a remote attacker to gain unrestricted, administrator level access to the underlying operating system. Sounds nasty.”
