iTunes vulnerable

A survey by the non-profit SANS Institute found new security holes in widely used software and the Cybersecurity research organization mentioned that over 422 significant new Internet security vulnerabilities emerged in the second quarter of 2005, an increase of eleven percent over the first quarter according to report from Reuters. While backup software and other desktop applications seem to be the latest targets, flaws in media players like Apple's iTunes and RealNetworks RealPlayer could allow malicious persons to access a user's computer via a corrupted MP3 file.
