The new iPhone and the way it will be sold look set to shut down a small industry that arose to make the first version of the iconic phone available around the world.
The original iPhone, which launched in June last year, was initially available only in the U.S. and only for use on AT&T Inc.'s network. In little more than a month, however, enterprising hackers found a way to "unlock" the phone to make it usable on other networks, including networks in other countries.
Apple has released a new version of QuickTime to fix five security issues that could allow hackers to take control of a system via malicious movie or image files.
The QuickTime 7.5 update comes roughly two months after Apple released Version 7.45 to plug 11 security holes in the application. This time around, the update addresses a series of buffer overflows, URL-handling flaws and memory corruption issues affecting Mac OS X and Windows XP and Vista users.
