Patch Issued for QuickTime for Windows

Apple has issued a patch for a critical flaw in QuickTime that could be exploited to hijack Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 running Internet Explorer with the QuickTime ActiveX control.  The company was notified of the vulnerability in June through a bug bounty program.  The update, QuickTime 7.6.8, also addresses the DLL load hijacking bug.

The update is for Windows versions of QuickTime only. It can be obtained from the Apple website.
