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 Xenorate which could result in remote code execution.
Xenorate is a media player for the Windows operating system.
The application is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input. Specifically, this issue occurs when parsing a specially crafted '.xpl' file.
Successfully exploiting this issue may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the vulnerable application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.
- Xenorate 2.50 is vulnerable.
