HTTP Acoustica Mixcraft Mx4 BO

Severity: High

This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.


This signature will detect attempts to exploit a Buffer Overflow Vulnerability in Acoustica Mixcraft software.

Additional Information

Acoustica Mixcraft is multitrack audio and MIDI recording software.

Acoustica Mixcraft is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer. Specifically, the application fails to handle malformed 'mx4' files containing an excessively large image filename.

An attacker could exploit this issue by enticing a victim to load a malicious '.mx4' file. If successful, the attacker can execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application.

Acoustica Mixcraft 4.2 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.


Ensure that all Acoustica Mixcraft updates have been applied and you are running the latest version available by the vendor.
