Description

Certain versions of QuickTime ship with an ActiveX control that is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. As a result, a malicious webpage can be constructed which causes arbitrary code execution under the privileges of the ActiveX control.

Solution(s)

  • quicktime-upgrade-latest
  • quicktime-upgrade-4_1_3

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
