(Links to External Site)
Date: Nov 4 2005
Denial of service via network, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network|
Fix Available: Yes Vendor Confirmed: Yes |
Version(s): 6.5.2 for Mac OS X, 7.0.1 for Mac OS X, 7* for Windows (prior to 7.0.3)|
Several vulnerabilities were reported in Apple QuickTime Player. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.|
A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will cause the player to crash or to execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
The player contains an integer overflow in the processing of MOV video files. A sign extension of an embedded "Pascal" style string can trigger one overflow [CVE-2005-2753]. Invalid movie attributes can trigger another overflow [CVE-2005-2754].
The player does not properly process movies with a missing movie attribute, triggering a NULL pointer dereference and causing the player to crash [CVE-2005-2755].
The Apple QuickTime PictureViewer contains a buffer overflow in the expansion of compressed PICT data [CVE-2005-2756].
Piotr Bania discovered these vulnerabilities.

Apple QuickTime Player is one of the Apple QuickTime components
used by hundreds of millions of users.
Apple QuickTime Player is reported prone to remote integer overflow
vulnerability (exploitable via remotely originated content).
A sign extension of an embedded "Pascal" style string could result in
a very large memory copy, which lead to potencial memory overwrite.
The vulnerability may lead to remote code execution when specially
crafted video file (MOV file) is being loaded.
III. POC CODE
Due to severity of this bug i will not release any proof of concept
codes for this issue.
IV. VENDOR RESPONSE
Vendor (Apple) has been noticed and released all necessary patches.
