Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Apple QuickTime, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

1) A boundary error when parsing packed scanlines from a PixData structure in a PICT file can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted PICT file.

2) An error in the processing of AAC-encoded media content can be exploited to cause a memory corruption via a specially crafted media file.

3) A boundary error in the processing of PICT files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted PICT file.

4) A boundary error in the processing of Indeo video codec content can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted movie file with Indeo video codec content.

5) An error in the handling of "file:" URLs can be exploited to e.g. execute arbitrary programs when playing specially crafted QuickTIme content in QuickTime Player.

6) An sign-extension error in the processing of PICT files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted PICT file.

Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.
