“MySpace.com wants Apple Computer to update its QuickTime media player software so it can’t be used in attacks on the social-networking site,” Joris Evers reports for CNET News.
Evers reports, “Apple is working on a QuickTime fix, but has a temporary solution available Tuesday, company spokeswoman Lynn Fox said in an e-mail. ‘Recently we learned about an issue that exploits a feature in QuickTime used to target MySpace users. We have devised a way to disable this QuickTime feature for those who use Internet Explorer. We are working on a broader solution for all other users as well,’ Fox said in the e-mail.”
Evers reports, “Apple said it has provided MySpace with the temporary fix. The computer company said it would be up to the social-networking site to offer it to users. MySpace has not responded to an inquiry from CNET News.com as to when the temporary solution would be available to users.”
