Description

A memory corruption issue exists in QuickTime's parsing of Image Descriptor (IDSC) atoms. Opening a maliciously crafted movie file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of Image Descriptor atoms in movie files. Credit to Cody Pierce of TippingPoint DVLabs for reporting this issue.
