Apple OS X QuickLook Excel File Integer Overflow Vulnerability

Apple OS X QuickLook is prone to an integer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input. Specifically, this issue is related to the handling of Microsoft Excel spreadsheet files.

Successfully exploiting this issue may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will cause denial-of-service conditions.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 31681 (Apple Mac OS X 2008-007 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document this vulnerability.
