Apple QuickTime Sample Table Sample Descriptor (STSD) buffer overflow
|quicktime-stsd-bo (34244)||High Risk|
Apple QuickTime is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper parsing of malformed STSD atoms. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted QuickTime movie file containing a STSD atom, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and 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 attachment or hosting it on a Web site.
