Description

A cross-origin issue existed in QuickTime plug-in's handling of cross-site redirects. Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to the disclosure of video data from another site. This issue is addressed by preventing QuickTime from following cross-site redirects. For Mac OS X v10.6 systems, this issue is addressed in Mac OS X v10.6.7. This issue does not affect OS X Lion systems.
