Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in Mini-stream ASX to MP3 Converter 184.108.40.206 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) a long rtsp URL in a .ram file and (2) a long string in the HREF attribute of a REF element in a .asx file. NOTE: the latter was also subsequently reported in "prior to 220.127.116.11."
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
