Apple Releases Security Update 2007-001
Tuesday, January 23, 2007
Posted by: Glenn

Apple has released Security Update 2007-001 via Mac OS X's Software Update utility and on the Web. The update specifically addresses a possible security flaw in QuickTime. According to the company, "A buffer overflow exists in QuickTime's handling of RTSP URLs. By enticing a user to access a maliciously-crafted RTSP URL, an attacker can trigger the buffer overflow, which may lead to arbitrary code execution. A QTL file that triggers this issue has been published on the Month of Apple Bugs web site (MOAB-01-01-2007). This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of RTSP URLs." The update weighs in at 4.9MB.

It seems like there have been a lot of updates correcting security issues with QuickTime lately. Shocked

Big thanks to the jokers @ M.O.A.B for pointing this flaw out. Even BIGGER thanks to Apple for addressing these "bugs" so quickly. Wink

Definitely! It's good to see Apple is responding to MoAB.

There was an article with someone saying it was astonishing how slow the response from Apple was, to fix some of these flaws. I guess that person forgot about Microsoft when stating that comment.

The original MOAB report for this bug is dated 01-01-2007. I would say 22 days is pretty good. I think these people should give Apple a little bit of a break. They also had Macworld and the iPhone to worry about earlier this month. I mean that's the important stuff. Laughing
