Apple issues 8 critical QuickTime security updates

Today Apple issued a security update for QuickTime 7.6. The update addresses flaws in both the Mac OS X and Windows XP and Vista implementations of the media viewer.

Specifically, the update fixes flaws CVE-2009-0001 through CVE-2009-0007.

The eight vulnerabilities within QuickTime can all be exploited to cause an unexpected application termination (denial of service) or arbitrary code execution on affect PCs, and therefore this patch should be taken seriously.
