Apple's QuickTime Player is multimedia software that allows users to view local and remote audio, video, and image content. QuickTime contains an integer overflow in code that handles JPEG images. This vulnerability may be triggered by sending the QuickTime Player, or an application that uses the QuickTime plug-in, a specially crafted JPEG image file.
