QuickTime 7.5.5 released
Apple today released QuickTime 7.5.5 to coincide with iTunes 8
and various other patches released today. The update is required for the latest iTunes update and also fixes vulnerabilities from maliciously-crafted movies and images. If you just use your machine for editing, this patch is not necessary. If you are likely to be using iTunes 8 or doing a lot of web surfing on your FCP machine (it's ideally best to avoid using your FCP machine for other purposes) I would advise waiting around for at least a week for any issues to surface.
As always, only update if it is absolutely necessary, NEVER update in the middle of a project unless there is a serious problem preventing you from completing the project, and always clone your disk
before updating so that you have an exact copy of your original configuration to revert back to.QuickTime 7.5.5 for LeopardQuickTime 7.5.5 for Tiger
