Kara Reeder

The Washington Post blogger Brian Krebs reports that Apple has issued a security update to fix several vulnerabilities in the iPhone and iPod Touch. The iPhone version 3.1 offers at least 10 security fixes, as well as several minor new features.


Apple also issued a patch to plug security holes in the Windows and Mac versions of QuickTime. The update fixes at least four separate security problems.


Last week, Apple released a slate of patches in Java for Mac OS X 10.5 that plugged a total of 15 security holes.
