Apple this week issued an update that plugs at least 15 security holes in its QuickTime media player.
The patch – which brings QuickTime to version 7.6.9 — quashes several critical bugs that could be exploited to install malicious software were a user to load a poisoned media file. Updates are available for both Mac and Windows versions of the program.
Windows users can grab the update from the bundled Apple Software Update application; Mac users of course can use Software Update. Both OS versions also are available through Apple Downloads.
