    [news=http://images.apple.com/itunes/images/itunesnavtop20051012.gif]A critical vulnerability, found in some versions of Apple Computer's popular iTunes, could enable attackers to remotely take over a user's computer, according to a warning issued Thursday by a security research firm.The discovery of this flaw comes days after Apple issued its security update for iTunes 6 for Windows.

    This flaw existed on the earlier version of iTunes 6 for Windows and was not addressed by the newest security update, according to a warning issued by eEye Digital Security After eEye mistakenly posted a note on its Web site saying the iTunes flaw affected "all operating systems," the security firm updated its warning to indicate that the flaw had been found only on the Windows operating system so far.However, eEye is now testing whether the flaw also affects iTunes running on Mac operating systems.

    well, I don't know.....should we balme em?
    you have to realize that Mac people aren't as used to dealing with crap like Windows users are
    script kiddies are busier trying to fuck over Billy Gates, not Mac,
    so it's almost excusable that they should miss something
