ITunes Flaw Patched

Unread postby Bertha » May 11th, 2005, 4:31 am

Hey,

From Bullguard

Apple Computer has patched a flaw in iTunes that could open the door to a remote attack on a person's computer, ZDNet reports. http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1009_22-5701556.html

The fix was released as part of the company's iTunes 4.8 update. Earlier versions of the music software have a vulnerability within MPEG-4 file parsing. People who access a malicious MPEG-4 file could trigger a buffer overflow exploit, which could then allow an attacker to gain remote control of their computer without their knowledge or crash iTunes.

"This is considered highly critical because it doesn't require significant user interaction," said Thomas Kristensen, chief technology officer at Secunia, which released an advisory on the security hole on Tuesday. "If you visit a malicious Web site and have an MPEG-4 data stream handled by an iTunes application, you could be affected."
