Apple Mac OS X Mail.app Remote Image Loading Preference Bypass
Remote / Network Access
Loss of Confidentiality,
Loss of Integrity
Mac OS X contains a flaw that may allow security restrictions to be bypassed. The issue is triggered when replying to or forwarding an email within the Mail application, and remote images will be loaded, even if the option to block loading images has been selected. It is possible that the flaw may allow malformed image files or web bugs to be accessed resulting in a loss of confidentiality and/or integrity.
Currently, there are no known workarounds or upgrades to correct this issue. However, Apple has released a patch to address this vulnerability.
