∞ QuickTime, GarageBand updates improve stability

In addition to updating iTunes, Apple on Monday also released updates for its QuickTime media software and GarageBand, the company’s consumer music creation application.

According to Apple, QuickTime 7.6.2 “includes changes that increase reliability, improve compatibility and enhance security.” In fact, the QuickTime update fixes 10 security flaws in the application.

Among the changes are fixes for a memory corruption issue in QuickTime’s handling of Sorenson 3 video files; A heap buffer overflow in the handling of FLC compression files; A buffer overflow while processing a compressed PSD image; and An integer underflow in QuickTime’s handling of PICT images, among others.

GarageBand 5.0.2 improved the purchasing experience for Artist Lessons in the GarageBand Lesson Store and improved accessing installed Jam Packs in the loop browser. Apple said the update also addresses general compatibility issues and improves overall stability as well.

The QuickTime and GarageBand updates are available from the company’s Web site.
