Secunia has always made Apple exploits bigger than they always are. I remember a while back they made the biggest deal out of a "proof of concept" for a trojan horse for OS X. I've lost all respect for this company.

Thats not to say that this bug isn't unimportant. But I also find it hard to believe that QuickTime is more vulnerable than IE 6. I work as a PC technician and I see a lot of PCs that don't have any service packs and/or hardly any updates. Microsoft must be paying this company some big money these days....
