CyberLink PowerDVD <= 8.0 Crafted PLS/M3U Playlist File BoF Vulnerability

Title: CyberLink PowerDVD <= 8.0 Crafted PLS/M3U Playlist File BoF Vulnerability
Advisory ID: ZSL-2008-4891
Type: Local/Remote
Impact: System Access
Risk: (3/5)
Release Date: 02.07.2008
CyberLink PowerDVD is a commercial media player for Microsoft Windows and Linux. Several editions of the software are sold including "Ultra", "Deluxe" and "Standard". All editions support the viewing of DVD but only the Ultra edition supports Blu-ray playback.
PowerDVD is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input. Successfully exploiting these issues may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will cause denial-of-service conditions.
