Attack: Numark CUE M3U BO

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 an attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in Numark CUE.

Additional Information

Numark CUE 5 is a music-mixing application.

The application is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input. This issue occurs when the application fails to handle malformed '.m3u' files.

Successfully exploiting this issue may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will cause denial-of-service conditions.
