Computer security firm eEye Digital Security has criticised Apple, claiming that the latest iTunes 6 for Windows update released early in the week failed to patch a known bug revealed by the security company.
The vulnerability, which is labelled as 'critical' by the security firm, potentially allows an attacker to take control of a vulnerable machine.
"A remotely exploitable flaw exists that allows arbitrary code to be executed in the context of the logged in user," eEye said. However, the latest update from Apple fails to patch this iTunes 6 flaw, according to the security firm.
In a parallel announcement eEye warned of another 'critical' security bug in Apple's QuickTime media player, affecting both the Windows and Mac platforms.
