Description

A cross-site scripting issue existed in QuickTime Player's "Save for Web" export. The template HTML files generated by this feature referenced a script file from a non-encrypted origin. An attacker in a privileged network position may be able to inject malicious scripts in the local domain if the user views a template file locally. This issue is addressed by removing the reference to an online script. This issue does not affect OS X Lion systems. For Mac OS X v10.6 systems, this issue is addressed in Security Update 2011-006.
