Apple on Monday released an upgrade to its iTunes music store that closes a security hole in its anti-piracy protection.
The copyright protection for the songs sold in Apple's iTunes music store are among the best guarded assets of the company. The fear of the code leaking is one of the major reasons why Apple refuses to license it to third party manufacturers of audio equipment, sources inside the industry claim.
The upgrade to iTunes service will force current users to upgrade to the latest version of the iTunes software. The number of people affected by this requirement however is limited to about 15 percent, Apple told Cnet.
