Hi @ll,

the just released QuickTime 7.7.6 and iTunes 12.0.1 for Windows still
have quite some of the beginners errors I documented in
<http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2014/Aug/33> and
<http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2014/Aug/44>

QuickTime 7.7.6:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Media\QuickTime\shell\open\command]

@="C:\\Program Files\\QuickTime\\QuickTimePlayer.exe"

iTunes 12.0.1:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\daap\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\itls\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\itms\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\itmss\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\itpc\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\itsradio\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\itunesradio\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes.AssocProtocol.daap\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes.AssocProtocol.itls\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes.AssocProtocol.itms\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes.AssocProtocol.itmss\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes.AssocProtocol.itpc\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iTunes.AssocProtocol.pcast\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\pcast\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe /url \"%1\""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Media\iTunes\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\iTunes.exe"

Also, QuickTime 7.7.6 comes with version 2.3.6 of Apple's application
support, while iTunes 12.0.1 comes with version 3.1 of this package.

While the older version 2.3.6 properly quotes the command lines in

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{fdd068c2-d51a-4175-8a20-5cbc704ea3bd}\LocalSer
ver32]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\...\\APSDaemon.exe\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6812639B-FD61-4329-9901-22CFDBD690FE}\LocalSer
ver32]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\...\\APSDaemon.exe\""

the newer version 3.1 does not:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{fdd068c2-d51a-4175-8a20-5cbc704ea3bd}\LocalSer
ver32]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\APSDaemon.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6812639B-FD61-4329-9901-22CFDBD690FE}\LocalSer
ver32]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\APSDaemon.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D9E904CA-8865-42E7-B0F0-B7B8C4D54D70}\LocalSer
ver32]
@="C:\\Program Files\\...\\APSDaemon.exe"

Additionally, application support 3.1 contains outdated and vulnerable
version 10.0.40219.1 of MSVCR100.DLL and MSVCP100.DLL

Cf. <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/24671743> and
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2565063> alias
<http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms11-025>

Will Apple's developers and their QA EVER learn how to use filenames
with embedded spaces properly?
