Apple QuickTime H.264 integer overflow
|quicktime-h264-integer-overflow (28928)||High Risk|
Apple QuickTime is vulnerable to an integer overflow, caused by improper handling of malformed H.264 movie files. By creating a malicious H.264 movie file and persuading a victim to open the file, a remote attacker could cause the victim's QuickTime application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code on the victim's system with the privileges of the user. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending the malicious file as an email or attachment or hosting it on a Web site.
