Apple Releasing Security Update for QuickTime 7.1.6


Apple has released a security update patch for QuickTime 7.1.6. According to Apple, this security update is valid for Mac OS, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. It will fix a couple of QuickTime vulnerability holes that are related to Java execution. The company writes, “An implementation issue exists in QuickTime for Java, which may allow instantiation or manipulation of objects outside the bounds of the allocated heap. By enticing a user to visit a web page containing a maliciously crafted Java applet, an attacker can trigger the issue which may lead to arbitrary code execution.”
