MBP Battery/QT updates

Apple has released a battery update (version 1.3) for 15" MacBook Pros that the company says addresses battery performance issues with the 15-inch MacBook Pro. Instructions state that your computer's power cord must be connected and plugged into a working power source while running this update. Also, after the Battery Update has been installed, any additional batteries you put in your 15-inch MacBook Pro are automatically updated. Installation of Battery Update 1.3 requires Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later.

Also new is a security update for the Windows version of QuickTime 7.2. The update patches a flaw where viewing a maliciously crafted QTL file may lead to arbitrary code execution. Apple's description reads: "A command injection issue exists in QuickTime's handling of URLs in the qtnext field in QTL files. By enticing a user to open a specially crafted QTL file, an attacker may cause an application to be launched with controlled command line arguments, which may lead to arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue through improved handling of URLs. This issue does not affect Mac OS X."
