|CVSS SCORE||7.5, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)|
The specific flaw exists within how the application parses structures for a specific tag descriptor with a specific ICC color profile. When handling a field from this structure, the application will incorrectly check for signedness and then perform an operation on it. This will then get passed to an allocation. Immediately following this, the application will use a different size to initialize the allocation. This can lead to a controllable memory corruption which can be leveraged to achieve code execution under the context of the applicaiton.
Oracle has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
