Description

An integer arithmetic issue in QuickTime's handling of certain movie file atoms may lead to a stack buffer overflow. By enticing a user to open a maliciously crafted movie file, an attacker may cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue through improved handling of atom length fields in movie files. Credit to Cody Pierce of TippingPoint DVLabs for reporting this issue.
