Quicktime < 6.5.2

Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a Mac OS X update that fixes a security
issue.

Description :

The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Quicktime that is
older than Quicktime 6.5.2.

The remote version of this software reportedly fails to check bounds
properly when decoding BMP images, leading to a heap overflow.

If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a maliciously
crafted BMP file using the affected application, this issue could be
leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the affected host.
