Package : libquicktime
CVE ID : CVE-2016-2399
Debian Bug : 855099

Marco Romano discovered that libquicktime, a library for reading and
writing QuickTime files, was vulnerable to an integer overflow
attack. When opened, a specially crafted MP4 file would cause a denial
of service by crashing the application.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 2:1.2.4-7+deb8u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2:1.2.4-10.

We recommend that you upgrade your libquicktime packages.
