Description

An integer underflow in QuickTime's handling of PICT images may result in a heap buffer overflow. Opening a maliciously crafted PICT file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of PICT images. Credit to Sebastian Apelt working with TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, and Chris Ries of Carnegie Mellon University Computing Services for reporting this issue.
