Description

By carefully crafting a corrupt H.264 movie, an attacker can trigger an integer overflow or buffer overflow which may result in an application crash or arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of H.264 movies. Credit to Mike Price of McAfee AVERT Labs and ATmaCA working through TippingPoint and the Zero Day Initiative for reporting these issues.
