RETIRED: Apple QuickTime RTSP Response Header Content-Length Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
Apple QuickTime is prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized stack-based memory buffer.
This issue occurs when handling specially crafted RTSP Response headers.
Attackers can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the user running the affected application. Successful exploits will compromise the application and possibly the underlying computer. Failed attacks will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.
QuickTime 7.2 and 7.3 are vulnerable to this issue; other versions may also be affected.
NOTE: This BID is being retired because further analysis reveals that this is a duplicate of the issue described in BID 26549 (Apple QuickTime RTSP Response Header Content-Type Remote Stack Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability).
