Apple releases mammoth iTunes update

October 11, 2011
Apple on Tuesday released an update to its iTunes software to repair a whopping 79 vulnerabilities. Most of the flaws are memory corruption issues found in WebKit, an open source web browser engine that helps render the iTunes Store. In the case of those bugs, adversaries could launch a man-in-middle attack while a user browses the store, which may lead to malicious code execution. The other holes patched by upgrading to iTunes 10.5 lie in CoreFoundation, ColorSync, CoreAudio, CoreMedia and ImageIO.
