- -- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Apple Quicktime. User interaction is required
to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious
page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the parsing of XML elements within a TeXML
file. Specifically, when handling the sampleData element the code within
QuickTime3GPP.qtx does not properly validate the length of the data within
a color sub-field before copying it into a fixed-length buffer on the
stack. Exploitation of this vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code under the context of the user running Quicktime.

- -- Vendor Response:
Apple has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can
be found at:
