Description

A memory corruption issue exists in QuickTime's handling of H.264 movies. By enticing a user to access a maliciously crafted H.264 movie, an attacker can trigger the issue which may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of QuickTime H.264 movies.
