"A vulnerability has been reported in iTunes, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the MPEG-4 file parsing and can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted MPEG-4 file.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code."

BUMP to remove from unansered topics list.

( Is a link on main forum index page for View unanswered posts )

This is useful for finding HJT topics without a reply, BUT if lots of other posts have no reply they will get lost on that link.
So if posting news items etc where no reply is expected, please post a bump post after to clear from that list.
