QuickTime 7.2 released
Apple today released QuickTime 7.2 for Mac and Windows, an update to the multimedia software that addresses critical security issues and delivers full-screen support for viewing in QuickTime Player. The update also brings enhanced H.264 codec support, and includes numerous bug fixes. Apple recommends the update for all QuickTime 7 users, but warns that upgrading will disable the QuickTime Pro functionality in prior versions of QuickTime -- including QuickTime 5 and QuickTime 6. Users choosing to install the update must purchase a new QuickTime 7 Pro key to regain QuickTime Pro functionality. Security issues fixed by QuickTime 7.2 prevent unexpected application termination, arbitrary code execution, or the disclosure of sensitive information when users view a maliciously crafted movie or SMIL file, or visit a malicious website.
