Some vulnerabilities have been reported in VLC Media Player, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a user's system.

1) A boundary error exists within the "ASF_ObjectDumpDebug()" function in modules/demux/asf/libasf.c. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted ASF file.

2) A boundary error exists within the "AVI_ChunkDumpDebug_level()" function in modules/demux/avi/libavi.c. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted AVI file.

3) A boundary error exists within the "__MP4_BoxDumpStructure()" function in modules/demux/mp4/libmp4.c. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted MP4 file.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Vulnerability #2 is confirmed in version 1.0.1. Other versions may also be affected.

@Sid23 ,

As a new poster on the Community Forum , let me advise you that you are posting in a "sub-forum" reserved for technical commentary on a specific Secunia Advisory .

Your comments relate to your specific concerns about your program and it's display by PSI and are not relevant as such to SA 36762 .

If you still require help , I would suggest you repost your questions by "creating" a new thread in either the "Program" or "PSI" sub-forum (see the column on the left hand side of this "Community" webpage).

Take care
Anthony
