VLC Media Player < 1.1.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities (deprecated)

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5746

Synopsis

The remote host contains an application that allows arbitrary code execution.

Description

The remote host contains VLC player, a multi-media application.

Versions of VLC media player earlier than 1.1.6 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow vulnerability exists due to a failure to properly parse the header of a Real Media, which could then trigger a heap-based buffer overflow. It is not yet known if this issue can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3907)

- There are two heap corruption vulnerabilities in the CDG decoders that arise because of a failure to validate indices into statically-sized arrays on the heap, which could allow for arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2011-0021)

- A heap-based memory corruption vulnerability exists i the StripTags function in the USF decoder. (CVE-20111-0522)

Solution

Upgrade to VLC Media Player version 1.1.6 or later.
