VLC Media Player < 0.9.5 TY Media File Handling Memory Curruption (deprecated)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.

Description

The version of VLC Media Player installed on the remote host is earlier than 0.9.5. Such versions do not properly parse TY media files. By sending a specially formatted TY file and tricking a user into opening the file, arbitrary code may be executed within the context of the affected application.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.9.5 or higher.
