Apple patches first of ‘Month of Apple Bugs’

Apple’s first Security Update of 2007 (appropriately titled Security Update 2007-001) updates QuickTime for those using version 7.1.3 on Mac OS X 10.3.9, 10.4.8 or Windows XP/2000.

Although the description in Software Update is quite limited, the About Security Update 2007-001 page notes that this update addresses the issue reported January 1 on the Month of Apple Bugs site in which “visiting malicious websites may lead to arbitrary code execution.”

The size of the update varies depending on whether you’re using Panther or Tiger, but generally is no larger than 6MB.
