Additional Information

Moxa ActiveX SDK is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data. The vulnerability affects the 'PlayFileName()' function of the 'MediaDBPlayback.DLL' file. Attackers can exploit these issues by passing a very long string to the affected function.
