Additional Information

BaoFeng Storm is a multi-media player.

BaoFeng Storm ActiveX control is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data. The ActiveX control can be identified with the following CLSID: 6BE52E1D-E586-474F-A6E2-1A85A9B4D9FB. These issue affect the following methods of 'Mps.dll':

- advancedOpen()
- backImage()
- isDVDPath()
- rawParse()
- titleImage()
- URL()

Successfully exploiting these issues allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application using the ActiveX control (typically Internet Explorer). Failed exploit attempts likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
