Apple Mac OS X QuickDraw ARGB code execution

macos-argb-code-execution (31698) The risk level is classified as LowLow Risk

Description:

Apple Mac OS X could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a memory corruption vulnerability in the _GetSrcBits32ARGB function in the QuickDraw Manager when viewing a malicious PICT image. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a victim's application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code on the victim's system, if the attacker could convince the victim to open a specially-crafted PICT image with a malformed Alpha RGB record.
