Description


n00b has discovered a vulnerability in DVD X Player, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing .PLF playlist files and can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted .PLF file containing an overly long file name.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires tricking a user into opening a malicious playlist file.

The vulnerability is confirmed in versions 4.1, 5.5 Professional, and 5.5.3.7 Standard. Other versions may also be affected.
