high Nessus Plugin ID 78678
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Apple QuickTime installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 7.7.6. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A memory corruption flaw exists when handling specially crafted RLE encoded videos due to user-supplied input not being properly sanitized. (CVE-2014-1391)

- A buffer overflow flaw exists when parsing specially crafted MIDI files due to user-supplied input not being properly validated. (CVE-2014-4350)

- A buffer overflow flaw exists when parsing specially crafted M4A files due to user-supplied input not being properly validated. (CVE-2014-4351)

- A memory corruption flaw exists in the mvhd atom when handling malformed version numbers and flags due to not properly sanitizing user-supplied input. (CVE-2014-4979)

Successful exploitation of these issues by a remote attacker can result in program termination or arbitrary code execution, subject to the user's privileges.

Solution

Upgrade to QuickTime 7.7.6 or later.
