Apple has shipped a major security update to correct at least 41 vulnerabilities affecting users of its flagship Mac operating system. With Security Update 2007-009, the Cupertino, Calif. vendor corrects multiple critical flaws that could allow malicious hackers to take complete control of Mac OS X (Tiger and Leopard) machines.
A separate security update was also released to patch a solitary information disclosure hole in Safari 3 for Windows Beta. The Safari patch affects both Windows XP and Windows Vista systems.
Apple waited three weeks to patch several bugs in its popular Quicktime video player, mirroring Microsoft’s behavior with its ubiquitous Windows operating system.
The new patch released Thursday, brings Quicktime to version 7.3.1 and corrects a problem with the real-time streaming protocol.
Hackers could exploit the flaw by convincing users to visit web sites that contained malicious streaming content, or by getting users to open a corrupt QTL file sent as an e-mail attachment.
Thanks to another set of ambitious iPhone hackers, we've officially got video on Apple's wonder-device (that somehow omitted video to begin with). It's not much right now, but if you want, you can see your phone recording five succulent seconds of real-deal video at around 15 FPS. The developers say this is just a proof of concept, and they've been able to get up to 45 FPS on the device -- so hopefully we can expect a more robust version soon (like, say, one that lets you save the recording). Check the video after the break to see the gorgeous work in action
Apple has released a new security patch for QuickTime, its eighth update this year for the media player software.
The update addresses three critical security holes in QuickTime, including a vulnerability that has been used in attacks by online criminals.
So the impossible has been made possible! It appears that eok has managed to get the SIP app from the Nintendo DS ported over to the ipod touch and it WORKS! They still haven't managed to get audio in/out to work yet, but its only a matter of days before they get this sorted. From the Touch Mods blog:
Amazing news, guys! I have no words! We all knew it will come.
So here it is:
