QuickTime 7.3.1 Plugs RTSP Security Hole

QuickTime 7.3.1 Plugs RTSP Security Hole

by , 7:55 AM EST, December 14th, 2007

Apple released QuickTime 7.3.1 Thursday afternoon to address several security flaws in the multimedia tool. Most notably, the update patches an RTSP flaw that could allow at attacker to run unauthorized code on a victim's computer.

The update also fixed a QTL flaw that an attacker could use to cause applications to crash or run arbitrary code on the victim's computer, and patched several security holes in the QuickTime Flash media handler by limiting playback to known safe formats.

QuickTime 7.3.1 updates are available for Mac OS X 10.3.9, 10.4.9 and higher, and 10.5, as well as Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista. The updates are free and available through Apple's Software Update application and as stand alone installers from the Apple QuickTime Web site.
