Apple - Mise à jour de sécurité corrigeant les vulnérabilités dans QuickTime

Apple - Mise à jour de sécurité corrigeant les vulnérabilités dans QuickTime | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Apple vient de publier un avis adressant 17 failles de sécurité dans QuickTime Media Player. La mise à jour est classée critique car plusieurs vulnérabilités fixées peuvent permettre l'exécution de code à distance.

 

L'une des vulnérabilités critiques adressées est CVE-2012-0671, que j'ai découverte et signalée à Apple plus tôt cette année.

 

Pour contextualiser, QuickTime est utilisé par 61% de tous les ordinateurs compatibles connectés à Internet, y compris 49% de tous les PC Windows et 98% des ordinateurs Apple (Source : Qualys BrowserCheck).

 

Même si vous n'utilisez pas QuickTime par défaut pour lire des films et des vidéos, il peut être utilisé comme lecteur multimédia pour le format PCT sur tous les navigateurs Web, y compris Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer et Firefox.

Hands-on with five antivirus apps for the Mac

Hands-on with five antivirus apps for the Mac | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

So Mac invulnerability to malware is a myth, at least according to security researchers from Kaspersky Lab.

 

And although such a blunt statement may be a blow to the ego of some Mac users, it remains true.

 

Security researchers from all walks have long argued that it was only a matter of time before the Mac became popular enough that virus, malware, and spyware makers would come calling, and the recent Flashback scare has only served as a reminder that overconfidence precedes carelessness. Especially when it comes to technology.

OS X Lion : une faille de sécurité met les mots de passe à nu dans FileVault

La mise à jour 10.7.3 de Mac OS X Lion publiée la semaine dernière n'a pas fait que corriger des bugs : elle en a également fait apparaître un dans le module de chiffrage de l'OS, FileVault. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

===> La solution pour pallier le problème est donc d'opter pour FileVault 2 et de procéder à un chiffrement du disque dur, en attendant qu'Apple propose un correctif officiel pour cette faille. <===

Apple has now brought OS X 10.5 (Leopard) up to speed with Lion, at least when it comes to security. The company issued updates to Leopard users on Monday with Leopard-friendly copies of the Flashback removal tool that was released to Lion users last month, as well as the ability given to Lion users last week to disable out-of-date versions of Flash in Safari.

 

The updates come via the Flashback Removal Security Update and Leopard Security Update 2012-003, both posted to Apple's download site on Monday afternoon (also available via Software Update). Both downloads require OS X 10.5.8 in order to install.
