When passed an incorrectly formatted sound file, the Oliver Debon (freeware) Flash plug-in is reportedly vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
The DefineSound tag in a sound file passes data to a Flash plug-in. If this tag specifies fewer samples than are actually present in the data, a buffer overflow may occur in the plug-in produced by Oliver Debon.
The attacker may crash browser or execute commands as the user running the Flash plug-in.
Because the software is unsupported and no patches are available, CERT/CC is unaware of any corrective measures.
