Apple QuickTime fails to properly handle MPEG-4 movie files. This vulnerability may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition.
Apple's QuickTime Player is multimedia software that allows users to view local and remote audio, video, and image content. QuickTime contains a buffer overflow in the code that handles MPEG-4 movies. This vulnerability may be triggered by sending the QuickTime Player, or an application that uses the QuickTime plug-in, a specially crafted MPEG-4 movie file.
Note that this issue affects QuickTime installations on both Apple Mac and Windows operating systems.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition.
