  1. “The contents of the iTunes Tutorials window are retrieved from the network using an unprotected HTTP connection. An attacker with a privileged network position may inject arbitrary contents. This issue was addressed by using an encrypted HTTPS connection to retrieve tutorials.”

    Why couldn’t that info have been listed in the update description itself?

      1. Paul is right. Perhaps many, if not most, Apple users love to act smug about security and claim “virtually no one would care” about a security flaw in a very popular Apple program. But if Apple thinks its so important that the whole world knows about its Hebrew updates, pushing it to every user even if they are not Hebrew speakers, why not also tell the world the REAL reason iTunes needed to be patched?

        1. I take security seriously. But I don’t believe that I have much to worry about from this iTunes Tutorial flaw. It requires an “attacker with a privileged network position.” Under those circumstances, you have a lot more to worry about than an obscure security flaw in a tutorial system that I never use.

          You have free speech, and so do the people who 1-star you and point out your trollish FUD. When you attempt to conflate an obscure security flaw with some type of Apple conspiracy of obfuscation and the much maligned “smug Apple user,” then you are going to get reamed on this forum. Your posts would be much more appreciated on Android-R-Us websites.

  2. I’ve been using iTunes since 2004. Ten years later, I’m amazed at what a complex beast it has become. Even with state of the art equipment, I occasionally have to hold my breath and hope it behaves right when synchronizing my iPads and iPhones. But it is not simple anymore. I don’t pay much attention to these updates, though I do get them since they are likely to patch holes I may not be aware of.

    1. The only thing that Apple insists on syncing, that has mostly worked for me, is Contacts. I have been trying to be patient, ever since the .Mac and MobileMe days, but am starting to think they will never get sync right. Have you recently read the KB articles on synching iOS devices with iTunes? You’ve got to be kidding me! I was trying to help a friend over the phone who was wanting to sync several different models of iOS devices, for the first time, backup precious pics and video, etc., etc. I was embarrassed having been the one who talked him into switching to Apple…

  3. Since audio books are not “tunes” I wish Apple would break them out of iTunes control. As an early Audible member I have grandfathered in the two books each month for $25/mo. Which means I have at least a hundred audio books. iTunes allows me to scroll a small view of hundreds of audio books, looking for the checked one or two that need to come off my iPhone, and then scroll around again trying to find the one or two that were “recently added” or have a zero play count or a last play date of “never” — all metadata used to help you locate music but ignored in books and movies. Maybe if I start sending Tim Cook one of my book credits each month some attention will be given to the other sources within iTunes: Hopefully Tim will tell engineering to create an AudioBook app or something.

  4. This update makes iTunes crash every time I plug in my iPod, it’s also rendered my iPod useless by confusing it to the point where it knows that it only has 93.6 GB/160 free, but thinks there is no music, videos or podcasts on it. I called Apple and they told me to go to an apple store…I dont know how that will help.
