This signature will detect attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in AstonSoft DeepBurner.

Additional Information

AstonSoft DeepBurner is a CD/DVD-burning application for Microsoft Windows platforms.

DeepBurner is prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before using it in a memory copy operation.

Specifically, the vulnerability affects the 'file name' tag located in DBR or DBI files, which contain a listing of files to be included in a CD/DVD burning project. The application fails to allocate a sufficiently sized buffer for user-supplied data in these files, allowing an attacker to corrupt process memory by supplying more than 272 bytes as input for the 'file name' tag. The compilation of a maliciously designed DBR file can trigger this vulnerability.

This issue allows attackers to overwrite a sensitive memory buffer with arbitrary data, potentially allowing them to execute malicious machine code in the context of affected application. This vulnerability may facilitate the compromise of affected computers.

AstonSoft DeepBurner 1.8.0 and are affected; previous versions may be vulnerable as well.
