    Criteria for the severity of an update

      Hi all,

       

      What is the criteria used to determine the Severity of an update in Shavlik Patch? I ask because I see that the latest update for QuickTime, 7.7.9, has a "low" severity, but on Apple's site it says this update resolves a security vulnerability: "Viewing a maliciously crafted movie file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution". That sounds pretty severe to me. Was this an oversight on your part, or is there a reason this update has been rated as low?
