Description


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

1) An error in the third-party Indeo5 codec for QuickTime in "ir50_32.qtx" can be exploited to access uninitialised memory via a specially crafted movie file.

2) A boundary error in QuickTimeInternetExtras.qtx when parsing files via the third-party Indeo3.2 codec for QuickTime can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted movie file.

3) A boundary error in the parsing of panorama atoms in QTVR (QuickTime Virtual Reality) movie files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted QTVR file.

4) A boundary error in the parsing of panorama PDAT atoms in QTVR (QuickTime Virtual Reality) movie files can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a QTVR file containing specially crafted "maxTilt", "minFieldOfView", and "maxFieldOfView" elements.

5) An integer overflow in the parsing of PICT images can be exploited via a specially crafted PICT image.

6) An error in the CallComponentFunctionWithStorage() function when parsing STSZ atoms in movie files can be exploited to corrupt memory via a movie file containing a overly large entry in sample_size_table.

7) Multiple errors when parsing H.264 encoded movie files (e.g. an integer overflow when parsing AVC1 atoms and two errors when parsing MDAT atoms) can be exploited to corrupt memory via a specially crafted file.

8) An error in the parsing of PICT images can be exploited via a specially crafted PICT image file.

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


Solution:
Update to version 7.5.5.
