Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a media player that is affected by a
buffer overflow vulnerability.

overflow vulnerability in the 'parseRTSPRequestString()' function in
that library exists that could lead to a program crash or arbitrary code
execution when handling a specially crafted RTSP message.
