0x58 has discovered a vulnerability in Virtual DJ, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when loading M3U playlist files. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted playlist file containing an overly long file name (greater than 478 bytes).
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in trial version 5.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not open untrusted playlists.
