Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Move Media Player, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors within the Quantum Streaming IE Player ActiveX control when handling arguments passed to the "Play()" and "Buzzer()" methods. These can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows by passing overly long string to the affected methods.
Successful exploitation allow execution of arbitrary code but requires that a user is e.g. tricked into visiting a malicious website.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in qsp2ie07051001.dll version 188.8.131.52 of the ActiveX control included in the Move Media Player installer. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Set the kill-bit for the affected ActiveX control.
Provided and/or discovered by: Parvez Anwar, and independently discovered by Will Dormann.
