VLC Media Player < 1.1.4 Patch Subversion Arbitrary DLL Injection Code Execution (deprecated)
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5651
The remote host contains an application that allows arbitrary code execution.
The remote host contains VLC player, a multi-media application. Versions of VLC media player earlier than 1.1.4 are potentially affected by a code execution vulnerability. The application insecurely looks in its current working directory when resolving DLL dependencies, such as for 'wintab32.dll'. If a malicious DLL with the same name as a required DLL is located in the application's current working directory, the malicious DLL will be loaded.
Upgrade to VLC Media Player version 1.1.4 or later.
