Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
In the SDK in Bento4 1.5.0-616, the AP4_StssAtom class in Ap4StssAtom.cpp contains a Write Memory Access Violation vulnerability. It is possible to exploit this vulnerability and possibly execute arbitrary code by opening a crafted .MP4 file.
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.
