Apple has released an update for iTunes that fixes an integer overflow in the AAC file parsing that can lead to code execution. Y'all want to get this one patched and updated.
APPLE-SA-2006-06-29 iTunes 6.0.5
iTunes 6.0.5 is now available and, in addition to its other content,
fixes the following security issue:
Available for: Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, Windows XP / 2000
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. Credit to ATmaCA working with TippingPoint and the Zero Day
Initiative for reporting this issue.
