Additional Information

ABBS Audio Media Player is a media player application for Microsoft Windows.

ABBS Audio Media Player is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data. Specifically, this issue occurs when processing a specially crafted '.lst' file.
