Vulnerability Note VU#998403
Aviosoft DTV Player buffer overflow vulnerability
Aviosoft DTV Player contains a buffer overflow in the handling of playlist (.plf) files, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Aviosoft DTV Player is a multiple format video player application. Aviosoft DTV Player 188.8.131.52 and possibly earlier versions fail to properly handle malformed user-supplied data within a playlist (.plf) file before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer, resulting in a buffer overflow.
By causing the Aviosoft DTV Player to parse a specially-crafted playlist (.plf) file, a remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application using the application.
We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.
