VLC Media Player < 0.9.3 XSPF Playlist Memory Corruption (deprecated)



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.


Upgrade to version 0.9.4 or higher (there are no official binaries for Windows of version 0.9.3).
