Apple QuickTime fails to properly handle FlashPix images. This vulnerability may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition.


Apple's QuickTime Player is multimedia software that allows users to view local and remote audio, video, and image content.

This vulnerability may be triggered by sending the QuickTime Player, or an application that uses the QuickTime plug-in, a specially crafted FlashPix file.

Note that this issue affects QuickTime installations on both Apple Mac and Windows operating systems.


A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition.
