Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of QuickTime installed on the remote Windows host is older

- An integer overflow in QuickTime's handling of PICT
images may lead to an application crash or arbitrary
code execution (CVE-2008-3614).

- An uninitialized memory access issue in the third-
party Indeo v5 codec, which does not ship with
QuickTime, may lead to an application crash or arbitrary
code execution (CVE-2008-3615).

- Heap and stack-based buffer overflows in the handling of
panorama atoms in QTVR (QuickTime Virtual Reality)
movie files could lead to an application crash or
arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-3624 and
CVE-2008-3625).

- A memory corruption issue in QuickTime's handling of
STSZ atoms in movie files could lead to an
application crash or arbitrary code execution
(CVE-2008-3626).

- Multiple memory corruption issues in QuickTime's
handling of H.264-encoded movie files could lead to
an application crash or arbitrary code execution
(CVE-2008-3627).

- An invalid pointer issue in QuickTime's handling of
PICT images could lead to an application crash or
arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-3628).

- An out-of-bounds read issue in QuickTime's handling
of PICT images could lead to an application crash
(CVE-2008-3629).

- A stack-based buffer overflow exists in the third-party
Indeo v3.2 codec for QuickTime, which could lead to an
application crash or arbitrary code execution when
viewing a specially crafted movie file (CVE-2008-3635).
