Apple last week released a massive security update package for their Mac OS X operating system as well as updates for the QuickTime player bundled with Mac OS X. The update fixes a number of security issues including a number of code execution vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to compromise Mac OS X and run undesirable programs.
The update also includes fixes for Apples popular Quick Time player that could allow an attacker to use malformed media files launch denial of service attacks or compromise a users system. The update to QuickTime also improves the applications stability.
Apple releases 43 security updates
