Description

A heap buffer overflow exists in QuickTime's handling of Track Header (tkhd) atoms. Viewing a maliciously crafted movie file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This issue is addressed through improved bounds checking. This issue does not affect Mac OS X systems. Credit to Moritz Jodeit of n.runs AG, working with TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, and Carsten Eiram of Secunia Research for reporting this issue.
