Helix Player is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Successful exploits may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will cause denial-of-service conditions. 


The following example URI is available:

http://AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD:EEEE/%.20000000s%
