QuickTime < 7.6.7 QuickTimeStreaming.qtx SMIL File Debug Logging Overflow (Windows) (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5628


The remote host contains an application that is affected by a stack overflow vulnerability.


Versions of QuickTime earlier than 7.6.7 are potentially affected by a stack overflow in the application's error logging when debug logging is enabled. If an attacker can trick a user on the host into viewing a specially crafted movie file, he may be able to cause an application crash or even execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges. Note that this issue only affects QuickTime on Windows.


Upgrade to QuickTime 7.6.7 or later.
