Time to Patch Quicktime, iTunes, Mac OS X, and Panther

If you use Quicktime or iTunes software on Windows or Apple systems, or have Apple desktop or servers to manage then you might want to load the latest patches.

Apple released patches for its Quicktime and iTunes software to correct a problem where an unchecked buffer might allow arbitrary code to execute on an affected computer. The problem affects Windows and Apple platforms.

In addition Apple also released a security patch for its OS X and Panther operating systems. The patch corrects five problems in the AppleFileServer, Apache Web server, CoreFoundation, IPSec, and the Server Settings daemon.

You can read more about the issues in Apple's article 61798 or at Secunia's Web site, and download the patches at Apple support Web site.
