Apple patches QuickTime to root out 15 ugly vulns

Press and hold that bug spray can, baby

Apple plugged 15 vulns in its QuickTime media player earlier this week.

The patch applies to Windows and Mac OS X 10.5 versions of the software. Apple's Snow Leopard OS received the required fixes for the flaws in November.

With the exception of one update, 14 vulns were labelled as "critical" by Apple, and could "lead to arbitrary code execution".

Bug-prone QuickTime, which is currently on version 7.6.9, has been pumped with four security updates in the past year, with a total of 34 glitches being nailed by Apple.

The Cupertino outfit has more about the latest patches here. ®
