Apple patches first of ‘Month of Apple Bugs’

1 Comment

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.”
Quicktime rtsp URL Handler Stack-based Buffer Overflow

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

I’m looking at this MOAB list and still wondering if they just couldn’t find 30 bugs in OS X or they just aren’t focused enough to realize that other people besides Apple write apps for OS X? I mean, come on there has to be hundreds of ways to skin a cat. Why only one a day guys? I mean when the Month of Vista bugs comes around is it going to be hard to find only ONE a day?
