Description

Two issues affect QuickDraw when processing PICT images. Malformed font information may cause a stack buffer overflow, and malformed image data may cause a heap buffer overflow. By carefully crafting a malicious PICT image, an attacker may be able to cause arbitrary code execution when the image is viewed. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of PICT images. Credit to Mike Price of McAfee AVERT Labs for reporting these issues.
