Quicktime, iTunes updates

Apple today released updates to QuickTime 7.4.5, iTunes 7.6.2, and Front Row 2.1.3, offering several performance enhancements, as well as a patch for a security hole found in QuickTime. The patch fixes an issue related to the SHA-1 checksum, which is related to protecting files with 160-bit encryption. iTunes 7.6.2 doesn't list specifically which issues are fixed, but more than likely resolves compatibility with the new QuickTime version. Front Row's update similarly guarantees functionality with iTunes 7.6.2.

    A persistent bug

    Here's a FR bug they still haven't fixed: whenever I select a movie in Front Row and start playing it, then go back to the movies list to select another, as soon as I stop on another movie, the selection immediately jumps back to the movie I previously selected. In other words, you have to quit front row then restart it if you want to play another movie. Anyone else annoyed with this?
