CVE: CVE-2007-0714

Vendor:
Apple Inc.


Affected Versions:
Apple QuickTime versions < 7.1.5


Overview:
We have discovered a critical vulnerability in Quicktime Player.
The vulnerability allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code
in the context of the user who executes QuickTime.

This vulnerability can be exploited By persuading a user to open
a carefully crafted .mov files or visit a website embedding the
malicious .mov file.

The CVE-2006-1460 does not patch the root cause of this vulnerability.


Details:
This vulnerability exists in the way Quicktime process the "udta" Atom of
the .mov files.

The layout of a udta(user data atom) atom:

Bytes
_______________________
| User data atom |
| Atom size | 4
| Type = 'udta' | 4
| |
| User data list |
| Atom size | 4
| Type = user data types| 4
| |
-----------------------



By setting the value of the Atom size to a large value such as 0xFFFFFFFF,
an insufficiently-sized heap block will be allocated, and resulting in a
classic complete heap memory overwrite during the RtlAllocateHeap() function.




Vendor Response:

2006.05.06 Vendor notified via product-security@apple.com
2006.05.07 Vendor responded
