Impact: An integer overflow in iTunes could cause a denial of service or lead to the execution of arbitrary code
Description: The AAC file parsing code in iTunes versions prior to 6.0.5 contains an integer overflow vulnerability. Parsing a maliciously-crafted AAC file could cause iTunes to terminate or potentially execute arbitrary code. iTunes 6.0.5 addresses this issue by improving the validation checks used when loading AAC files. iTunes 6.0.5 is freely available from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/.
