Apple has released a security and feature update to correct multiple vulnerabilities in Apple Mac OS X 10.9.1.
Multiple vulnerabilities in Apple Mac OS X could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code, gain unauthorized access to system resources, or cause system components to stop responding, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.
The vulnerabilities are due to multiple errors in Apple ATS and QuickTime components, as well as third party libraries included in Mac OS X. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a malicious document, media file, or link. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause an application to terminate, gain unauthorized access to system resources, or execute arbitrary code on the targeted system.
Apple has confirmed the vulnerabilities in a security advisory and released software updates.
The security vulnerability applies to the following combinations of products.
