Here's the doc with info About the security content of iTunes 10.5 has long list of fixes included for windows - security fixes for OS X are either already in or being fixed as part of separate updates for OS X soon.
(From the notes on the security issues fixed, I hope this might address some of the previously reported cases of hijacked itunes store accounts.)
