Apple Mac OS X Image RAW Stack-Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Apple Mac OS X Image RAW is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized buffer.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the affected application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

NOTE: This vulnerability was previously covered in BID 28304 (Apple Mac OS X 2008-002 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities), but has been given its own record to better document the issue.
