Another QuickTime Attack

Kara Reeder

A week after Apple updated its media player to patch nine vulnerabilities, a hacker has released a zero-day attack code that exploits yet anouther vulnerability in QuickTime.

 

According to InfoWorld, the current form of the exploit causes QuickTime to crash, but Symantec researcher Aaron Adams thinks that code execution may be possible. The anonymous hacker agrees, saying as much in a post on the milw0rm.com site.

 

Apple has had a heck of a time with the media player, updating it five times this year, including these in January, February and April, to fix more than 30 flaws.
