Apple's iTunes 9.2 fixes security vulnerabilities
Apple has released version 9.2 of its popular iTunes media player for Mac OS X and Windows. The latest version includes a number of enhancements and new features. It now supports synchronisation with the iPhone 4, due for release on the 24th of June, the iOS 4 operating system, due for release on the 21st of June, and the forthcoming iBooks 1.1 application. PDF documents will in future be filed as books and backups with iTunes 9.2 and iOS4 will be faster. CD covers will also be displayed more quickly when browsing the music library.
The update fixes 40 security vulnerabilities, 38 of them in WebKit, that can be exploited to inject and execute code on a users system. Apple last week fixed the same vulnerabilities, plus a few extra, in Safari 4.1 and 5, which was included in the latest 10.6.4 update for Mac OS X.
iTunes is available to download for Windows (32 and 64-bit) and Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later, weighing in at between 93 and 102 MB.
