The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a
memory corruption vulnerability.
The version of VLC media player installed on the remote host is
earlier than 0.9.3. Such versions do not properly bounds-check an
identifier tag in XSPF files in the 'demux/playlist/xspf.c' library
before using it to index into an array on the heap. By tricking a
user into opening a malicious XSPF file, it may be possible to execute
arbitrary code within the context of the affected application.
See also :
Upgrade to VLC Media Player version 0.9.4 or later (there are no
official binaries for Windows of version 0.9.3).
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 7.3
Public Exploit Available : true
