This vulnerability allows attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Apple's QuickTime media player.
The specific flaw exists within the parsing of H.264 content. The implicit trust of a user-supplied size value during a memory copy loop allows an attacker to create an exploitable memory corruption condition. Exploitation requires that an attacker either coerce the target to open a malformed media file or visit a website embedding the malicious file.
Apple has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
