Apple iTunes Security Flaw Discovered

A critical vulnerability has been found in some versions of Apple's popular iTunes that could allow attackers to remotely take over a user's computer, according to a warning issued Thursday by a security research firm.

The discovery of this latest flaw comes days after Apple issued its iTunes 6 for Windows security update. The latest iTunes flaw, however, runs on all operating systems from Windows XP to Mac OS X, according to a security warning issued by eEye Digital Security. This flaw allows malicious hackers to launch arbitrary code remotely, which in turn can take control of a user's computer.
