Quicktime 7.5 Available

 

Apple has released QuickTime 7.5. The latest update "improves compatibility and addresses security issues."

 

The security update addresses maliciously crafted media files for both Windows and OS X machines. These media files could lead to unexpected application termination, arbitrary code execution, buffer overflow and all around bad stuff.

 

Check out Apple's complete security rundown and crediting of the firms and individuals who discovered the flaws.

I recently installed the "new and improved" QuickTime 7.5 update. Imagine my surprise when I started editing a video in iMovie 6HD and the picture was incredibly choppy and didn't sync with the sound. Apple wanted to charge me $50 to help me with this problem. After a little bit of searching, I found a shareware program called Pacifist that allows a user to reinstall older versions of software (including QuickTime 7.4).

Instructions for installing and reverting can be found here: http://www.macfixit.com/article.php?story=20080617143056579
