Web Attack: VUPlayer Cue File

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 detects attempts to exploit a buffer-overflow vulnerability in the VUPlayer.

Additional Information

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.
