|CVSS SCORE||9, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:C)|
The specific flaw exists within the way Quicktime decodes flic file. Flic files can contain FLC Delta Decompression block containing Run Length Encoded data. When Quicktime tries to decompress this data it reads a user supplied RLE Packet count field from the file and uses that as loop counter. A high value for this field will cause Quicktime to write outside previously allocated memory which could result into remote code execution.
Apple has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
