Researchers at Core Security Technologies have uncovered three vulnerabilities in Apple's iCal application that hackers can exploit to take over vulnerable machines or launch denial-of-service attacks.
According to an advisory from Core, the most serious of the bugs is the result of a memory corruption vulnerability that can be triggered if a user runs a malicious .ics (iCal calendar file). The other two are null-pointer errors caused when parsing malformed .ics files, Core researchers wrote in the advisory.
