Description

Integer overflow in ColorSync in Apple Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5.8, and Safari before 4.0.4 on Windows, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted ColorSync profile embedded in an image, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-4_0_4
  • apple-safari-windows-uninstall
