APPLE-SA-2007-10-03 Security Update for QuickTime 7.2

Security Update for QuickTime 7.2 is now available and addresses the
following issue:

CVE-ID:  CVE-2007-4673
Available for:  QuickTime 7.2 on Windows Vista, XP SP2
Impact:  Viewing maliciously crafted QTL content may lead to
arbitrary code execution
Description:  A command injection issue exists in QuickTime's
handling of URLs in the qtnext field in files with QTL content. By
enticing a user to open a specially crafted file, an attacker may
cause an application to be launched with controlled command line
arguments, which may lead to arbitrary code execution. This update
addresses the issue through improved handling of URLs. This issue
does not affect Mac OS X systems.
