3ivx MPEG-4 < 5.0.2 Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is prone to a
buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The 3ivx MPEG-4 compression suite is installed on the remote host. It
contains an MP4 codec for use with media players such as Windows Media
Player for creating and playing back MPEG-4 / MP4 files.

overflow vulnerability. If an attacker can trick a user on the
affected host into opening a specially crafted MP4 file with a media
player that uses this codec, this issue could be leveraged to execute
arbitrary code on the affected host subject to the user's privileges.
