Description

The SHAddToRecentDocs function in VideoLAN VLC media player 2.0.4 and earlier might allow user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted file name that triggers an incorrect string-length calculation when the file is added to VLC. NOTE: it is not clear whether this issue crosses privilege boundaries or whether it can be exploited without user interaction.
