A vulnerability has been discovered in WaveMax Sound Editor, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries (e.g. wnaspi32.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening a WAV or CDA file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires that files are opened via the Windows Explorer "Edit with WaveMax" menu.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.5.1. Other versions may also be affected.
