Intrusion Prevention



A vulnerability in Apple QuickTime may allow system compromise. The vulnerability is due to a boundry condition error when the application handles specially crafted QTIF, TGA, TIFF, and GIF image formats. An integer overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a TIFF image file with modified image height and width (ImageWidth) tags. Successful exploitation may allow a remote attacker to trigger a denial of service condition or gain unauthorized access.
