Apple fixes QuickTime hole after hack

Digital Arts

Apple has released a new version of Quicktime following a competition trying to "break into" a Mac without any apps running, when that failed through the browser.

The "hack" allows a malicious website to publish a java applet that can trigger the exploit in Quicktime.

The Quicktime update is available for both Windows and MacOS X, on Windows it can be obtained standalone or with iTunes. On MacOS it's available via the software update utility.
