Security researchers have warned that an unpatched bug in Apple's QuickTime software could leave Windows users vulnerable to attack. As of yesterday, there was no confirmation as to whether the Mac OS X versions of the media player are also vulnerable.

The critical bug in QuickTime 7.2 and 7.3 is in the player's handling of the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), an audio/video streaming standard. According to alerts posted by Symantec and the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), attackers can exploit the flaw by duping users into visiting malicious or compromised websites hosting specially-crafted streaming content, or by convincing them to open a rigged QTL file attached to an email message.
