Apple has released the latest versions of iTunes and QuickTime, bumping them up to versions 8.2 and 7.6.2 respectively. In addition to other updates, the new releases address a series of vulnerabilities plaguing the software duo.
The latest version of iTunes brings support for the much-anticipated iPhone 3.0 operating system, which will deliver long-desired features including copy-and-paste, MMS and notes sync. Version 8.2 sees a fix for a stack overflow in parsing “itms:” URLs which can result in a DOS or arbitrary code execution. Apple has stated that the program has also received accessibility updates.
QuickTime 7.6.2 patches 10 vulnerabilities, all of which seem to prevent certain malicious content from crashing the program or leading to arbitrary code execution. It seems that most of the bugs affect both Windows and Mac users, so grab your downloads here (or via Software Update).
