Description

A memory corruption issue exists in QuickTime's handling of AAC-encoded media content. Opening a maliciously crafted media file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of media files. Credit to Dave Soldera of NGS Software, and Jens Alfke for reporting this issue.
