Huge iTunes patch: Apply it and move on | Mac os x – InfoWorld

The patch fixed a very long list of vulnerabilities — 163 issues in all — to WebKit, an open source technology for rendering HTML used by iTunes and many other applications, including Safari, Googles Chrome, and Yahoo Messenger. Using WebKit as the basic framework for its technologies means that Apple gets many of the benefits of open source, including a well-vetted codebase and the fast reporting of vulnerabilities. In this case, for example, Google found nearly half of the 163 vulnerabilities, while Apple found 26.
