Published: 2011-08-18 12:57:45
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Impact:
Successful exploitation could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the currently logged-in user. Viewing a maliciously crafted movie file may lead to an unexpected application termination.

Affected Versions:
Apple QuickTime version prior to 7.7

Technical Details:
The flaws are due to - a buffer overflow error, when handling pict files. - heap buffer overflow error, when handling 'GIF' images and 'STSC', 'STSS', 'STSZ' and 'STTS' atoms in QuickTime movie files. - multiple stack buffer overflows existed in the handling of 'H.264' encoded movie files. - stack buffer overflow existed in the QuickTime ActiveX control's handling of 'QTL' files. - an integer overflow existed in the handling of track run atoms in QuickTime movie files. - improper bounds checking when handling 'mp4v' codec information.

Recommendations:
Upgrade to Apple QuickTime version 7.7 or later

Summary:
The host is running Apple QuickTime and is prone to multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
