Five vulnerabilities have been reported in FMOD Ex, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise an application using the library.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors within fmodex.dll in the processing of playlist files. These can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows e.g. if an application opens a specially crafted .m3u file.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerabilities are reported in fmodex.dll version 0.4.6.16. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 0.4.28.2 or later.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported as a vulnerability in Magic Music Player by Ricardo Silva, Corelan Team.
