Apple iPhone/iPod touch Prior to iOS 4 JPEG File Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Apple iOS for iPhone and iPod touch is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

Attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

Versions prior to iOS 4 are vulnerable.

NOTE: This issue was previously covered in BID 41016 (Apple iPhone/iPod touch Prior to iOS 4 Multiple Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document it.
