QuickTime flaws put Macs and PCs at risk

Serious flaws in Mac OS X and QuickTime software could put Macintosh and Windows systems at risk of cyber attack, Apple has warned.

In a pair of security alerts released on Thursday, Apple outlined 31 flaws that affect various versions of the operating system and a dozen vulnerabilities in its QuickTime media player software. Security experts have deemed the issues "critical" but Apple does not provide a severity rating. Fixes are available.

Apple's security update 2006-003 for Mac OS X and the QuickTime patch can be downloaded and installed via Software Update or from the Apple Downloads website.
