Do you watch videos with Quicktime? 

There's a new security bug in Apple's Quicktime media software which could allow your computer to get taken over. This is not the same Quicktime security bug that Apple fixed on December 13. Someone announced details of it without telling Apple first, so it will be a while before we get a fixed version of Quicktime. Meanwhile the bad guys know about it.

If I'm reading this right, all you have to do is click on a link to be affected.

If you uninstall Quicktime and reinstall it when the fix comes out, you should be OK.

UPDATE 1/15/2008:

Apple has released a fix. When Software Update offers to install it, remember that it's important and that you want it.
