As vnunet.com reported yesterday, Bania discovered four flaws in QuickTime versions 6.5.2 and 7.0.1 which he rated "highly critical" as they could be exploited by hackers to remotely execute malicious code.
"My rating is the same [as Secunia's]," Bania told vnunet.com after we brought the reader comments to his attention.
"How can you rate 'potential remote code execution vulnerability' as not highly critical? If the vendor confirmed the bug what more do people want? A working worm?"
When asked whether he thought our advice to users of the older QuickTime so ftware to upgrade was misguided, Bania said: "If someone would like to be a potential hacker target, your advice was misguided. All normal users should update the software."
