Die neuste iTunes-Version 7.4 ermöglicht nicht nur das nochmalige Bezahlen von Musik, die man bereits einmal gekauft hat Erstellen von Klingeltönen, sondern behebt auch eine Sicherheitslücke, die Apple wie folgt beschreibt:

CVE-ID: CVE-2007-3752

Available for: Mac OS X v10.3.9, Mac OS X v10.4.7 or later, Windows XP / Vista

Impact: Opening a maliciously crafted music file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

Description: A buffer overflow exists in iTunes when processing album cover art. By enticing a user to open a maliciously crafted music file, an attacker may trigger the overflow which may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing proper bounds checking. Credit to David Thiel of iSEC Partners for reporting this issue.
