DivX Web Player < 1.4.3.4 Stream Format Chunk Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a media player that is susceptible to
a buffer overflow attack.

Description :

DivX Web Player, which allows for playing HD-quality DivX video in a
web browser, is installed on the remote host.

The installed version contains a heap-based buffer overflow that is
triggered when processing 'STRF' (Stream Format) chunks. Using a
specially crafted DivX file, an attacker may be able to leverage this
issue to execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's
privileges.

Upgrade to DivX Web Player 1.4.3.4 or later in an updated DivX bundle
as that reportedly addresses the issue.
