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 detects attempts to exploit a buffer-overflow vulnerability in the VUPlayer.
VUPlayer is a media player for Microsoft Windows.
VUPlayer is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate checks on user-supplied input. Specifically, the issue occurs when parsing a specially crafted '.cue' metadata file.
Attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.
VUPlayer 2.49 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
